Project Mission

The village is called Kamagaga in a county called Kisumu in Kenya. The population of the village is about 2000 people. The land is black cotton soil suitable for growing so many kinds of crops. they plant rice, and yam and maize. There is a running water nearby which actually does not go dry at all. The land we intend to use as a garden is 3 acres.
 
 Most of the young children die because of malnutrition and hence there is a need to plant different kinds of food to improve nutrition in this area. The garden shall also give job to widows because they will work there…in fact, I like the idea of the organic that destroys pest in the soil. we have a lot of problems here with our vegetables. so many insects are here that destroys and we use commercial fertilizer which is very harmful. I am looking forward to see in practice what you do to help in the gardens.
 
 The project will serve as a centre of example to other villages around and help expand food production technology in other areas. soil will also gain fertility with your system and different crops will be planted. we also need so much training for the villagers on farming techs.
 
Should there be a need we shall need piping systems to take water to the farm which is 500 metres from the school.
The village is situated in the western part of Kenya in Kisumu county. it is 40km east of Kisumu and 7 hours drive from Nairobi. 20 widows will work on the farm on a rotational basis ie 6 hours a day, they will weed and take care of the farm. i am happy about the toilets indeed this will be a good source of manure. we have a school nearby of 120 children. 
 
Budget: £17,937.50
