Nyakitonto community updates

  • Vegetable farming takes off

    More than 351 farmers in the Nyakitonto community have received training in improved farming techniques, with many also receiving seeds to aid crop production. These farmers are part of 29 commercial producer groups that have been formed and supported to help increase household incomes. New equipment including drip irrigation kits is also helping them to grow vegetables such as onions, tomatoes and eggplants that are in high market demand.

  • Healthcare reaches remote villages

    In collaboration with the district council, the program is supporting monthly health outreach clinics in two villages in the community where the nearest health facility is a 40km walk away. A monthly average of 20 pregnant mothers and 250 children attend the clinics. Clinic staff are seeing improvements in the health and nutrition of the women and children attending.
