Farmers’ Club Sofala & Zambezia

 

Its overall objective was to reduce rural poverty and improve the livelihoods of 14,769 small-scale farmers and their families in selected districts by developing small-scale agriculture and increasing agricultural household income in a sustainable manner.

 

Special focus was given to women as primary producers, female-headed households and young farmers being both men and women.

 

From 2014 to 2018, the project concentrated its activities on:

  • Improving food security by strengthening agricultural diversification and productivity;
  • Marketing and micro-finance: improving market access and financial resources;
  • Household livelihoods: improving environmental, water and sanitation conditions and raising health awareness for farmers and their families.
