The Brother’s Self Help Group in Western Kenya focuses on increasing farm productivity in a sustainable way by training farmers on regenerative agriculture. With our support, thirty farmers from the Munami Village will learn a dynamic and holistic approach to farming which builds soil health, crop resilience and nutrient density. Unfortunately, the majority of farmers in this area are very poor and rarely eat three meals per day, let alone a balanced diet. Poor nutrition has also led to poor cognitive development in children below 5 years of age. With these newly acquired organic farming skills, entire families will have access to nutritious and quality fruits and vegetables and the establishment of a local seed bank will ensure that this initiative perdures. In addition, the 30 trained farmers will be mobilized to become trainers themselves with a goal to reach an additional 5,000 farmers over a period of a year, thus benefiting entire communities and villages in the rural county.
