Our charity appeal has already raised £637,000. In Lake Victoria, training on smart agriculture methods is creating new livelihoods
The harsh midday sun beats down on the withering pawpaw plants in Maureen Adhiambo’s patch of land.
The villagers in Kamenya have not seen rain for months, and when it does come, the soil is too dry and loose to retain any of the moisture or nutrients. Last year Adhiambo saw her maize dry up long before it could mature. Like many farmers in the Homa Bay region, on the south bank of Kenya’s Lake Victoria, she is staring at yet another cycle of crop failure.
