Beatrice is part of a women’s society in Zambia. Thanks to your support, she’s learnt how to grow food that can better survive the changing climate,
“With the changing weather things can be so difficult. But I learnt organic farming and drip irrigation, and now we can eat properly, we have a good diet. We only used to grow maize, but now we can grow many different kinds of crops.
“We used to depend on the rainy season but now we can grow crops all year round. We all share food to eat and sell some too if there’s excess.
“Thank you so much to SCIAF. We now have such a strong hope.”
