The Farmers of Kisa West
As we enter 2021, the team at BEU are due to complete the implementation stage of the 2nd pilot project in Sanje, Uganda at the end of January, ready to carry out the final 3-month consolidation stage.
Meanwhile, the team at C-MRA will be making their final preparations to start training a new group of Lead Farmers, this time in Kisa West, Kenya.
A huge thankyou to all of you whose contributions have got us off to such a strong start with our fundraising for our Phase 3 project. If you haven’t had a chance to contribute yet, please consider clicking the button to show your support for this vital work:-
Preparing the ground for Phase 3
The farmers will also engage in a workshop to define the indicators of success to be used in the project monitoring and evaluation, before the baseline survey is conducted later in January. Recruitment of additional farmers to the project is an ongoing process.
Working in Challenging Times
Despite all the challenges of working with groups at this time, the follow-up research with farmers involved in the Phase 1 project, along with ground-breaking training on using photo-voice and using phones to share stories of challenges and change, Paul and his team will be ready to start the new training in February, just one month later than the original plan agreed many months ago. This is a tremendous achievement of which they should all be extremely proud!
