Climate smart agriculture helps Felistus revive her farm

High impact gift solar panels

Felistus, a mother of two, lives in Kenya. She is a member of a local farmer organisation being supported through a project to empower farming communities to restore the environment and increase their incomes. 

Felistus has learned climate-smart farming approaches, such as rainwater harvesting, micro-irrigation and soil conservation. “Before the project my farm was completely bare. Before I used to plant trees and they would dry off,” she recalls. 

As a “model farmer”, chosen by the project to teach other farmers what she has learned, Felistus has been supported to establish a farm pond with a solar powered water pump. This enables her to capture water run-off and irrigate her crops all year round. Her fruit trees are now thriving. “I now have 40 mango trees, 25 pawpaw and several banana trees.” 

When you purchase from our selection of high impact gifts, you will be helping to create lasting change on a significant scale for parents like Felistus and their children all around the world.
