MISSION CAPSULES: Last year in Kishapu, one of the driest areas of Tanzania, the arid climate and unpredictability of rainfall left many farmers in dismay. Common crops didn't survive. "We're willing to try anything that will make us more food secure," shared one farmer. The PWS&D supported food security project in Kishapu provided farmers with weather-resilient, nutritious seed as well as training in conservation agriculture. Through conservation agriculture - a low-input farming method that helps soil retain moisture - their crops flourished despite the prolonged drought. The farmers continue to apply the methods they learned. By combining resilient seed with soil-friendly farming, they are laying the foundations of a more sustainable future.
