For over a decade, the people of Kalonga have had a challenge of food shortage to the extent that the majority of the families simply wake up to look for a meal for the day.
This can be attributed to poor farming methods and harsh climate that led to soil depletion. Food shortage doesn’t only lead to hunger but also sicknesses and prolongs the cycle of poverty .
According to Thrive’s training Module for organic gardening, the situation in Kalonga can be changed by building the soil that makes healthy plants, grow food that also prevent diseases than depending on food that actually cause disease, yet, without using expensive tractors or expensive irrigation systems or synthetic chemicals.
We have started our first Life garden at our farm in Kalonga!
