GRANDMA'S NEW YEAR PASTORAL INTERLUDE

January 7, 2019

We see Grandma's at the Mabanta River crossing with Uncle Osman and Aunty Zainab making the time-honoured trip to Sanda Magbolontor Chiefdom on a whistlestop tour to meet some of the villages recently joined Hope Sakuma and catch up with master farmer Andrew and Skeku and review the farm's development over the last year.

 

FIRST STOP... CASSAVA FARM

Mama Mayila gamely takes her life into her hands disappearing off into the distance on the back of a motorbike to reach our fully-fledged cassava farm - the biggest in the Chiefdom - started only in May last year now growing lushly and one which will seed cassava farms in 24 Hope Sakuma villages in Sanda Magbolontor.

 

Actually, make that a cashew nut farm for there's 600 saplings, donated by COOPI, lining the farm to ensure their regular weeding and care. These two drought-resistant crops, cassava and cashew nut, will boost nutrition locally and help these communities adapt to climate change.
