Kenya Tigania

The goal of this program is to enhance food security in the Tigania area, located in Meru County, Kenya.  This project seeks to contribute to this overall goal through:

  • Households diversifying their sources of income;
  • Farmers practicing agricultural methods that mitigate the risk of crop failure related to drought;
  • Communities practicing better stewardship of water, soil and forest resources;
  • Households practicing appropriate feeding and nutrition practices for young children
  • Households doing recommended hygiene and sanitation practices and gaining access to clean water.

Program activities will include:

  • Formation of Village Savings and Lending groups.
  • Training of farmers through Farmer Field Schools on conservation agriculture, poultry rearing, cultivation of dry land crops and other strategies for reducing risk from drought.
  • Promotion of water, sanitation and hygiene practices at the household and community level.
  • Integration of nutrition education and cooking demonstrations in Farmer Field School activities.
