Mennonite Central Committee Canada is supporting Christian Council of Mozambique with a three-year agriculture and livelihoods project in Changara and Marara districts of Tete province.
Food insecurity is high in this region due to ongoing drought, poverty, and poor agricultural techniques.
Farmers also struggle to connect with markets to purchase inputs and sell any excess crop or livestock. Building upon activities completed in two past project phases, this project will improve access to food by providing training on conservation agriculture methods, building sand dams to improve water quality and availability, and encouraging farmers to plant a variety of crops to improve diet diversity.
Farmer associations will allow beneficiaries to share agriculture and market knowledge with one another and work together to save for inputs.
