Seed Sovereignity Project

The Seed Sovereignty project is dedicated to promoting farmer seed systems through seed saving, seed multiplication and agro ecological practices. The project supports communities to revive their lost seed varieties as a way to diversify food production and reduce dependency on few grain crops like maize. By diversifying food production, farmers and thier communities will not only benefit from increased nutrition but will also become more resillient to climate change.

 

Chirumba High School in Bikita was selected as the pilot group for this project. A Baseline Survey and Seed Multiplication training were carrried out successfuly and seed has been distributed to the farmers for multiplication.

Youth promoting Agro- ecology through Integrated Land Use Management for nutrition enhancement and income diversity

This project targets Nyamakari Secondary School, Musavezi Primary School and Tumba Primary School and their surrounding villages in the Shurugwi District. It builds upon an existing initiative on Integrated Land Use Design (ILUD) which was introduced in November 2015. The project aimed at improving the technical capacity of schools to become excellent centres of learning and advocacy for communities to adapt to the effects of climate change, land use management and improve food and nutrition diversification and income sources. It also sought to empower schools and young people to advocate with local leaders, Rural District councils, Ministries and relevant parliamentary portfolio committees to come up with environmentally resilient policies, laws and budgets.
