The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is supporting Church World Service Tanzania with year one of a three-year agriculture and livelihood project in Kasulu District, Kigoma Region.
The area hosts many refugees, mainly from Burundi and Democratic Republic of the Congo. Currently, they rely on food rations from the World Food Programme to get by. However, food rations contain only staple items and are often limited. Vacant land around the refugee camp presents an opportunity to grow vegetables for food consumption, which some refugees have begun using. However, many refugees lack the necessary skills and resources to sustainably grow a diversity of crops.
4,050 people from 810 refugee households are participating in the project.
This project is providing tools, seeds and agricultural training to 4,050 people from 810 refugee households to improve their food security and nutrition, and help them to earn a living.
