Teaching on good practices for Growing Crops
Food security is a million dollar topic that's puzzling many stakeholders in the food industry especially in Africa. In Zimbabwe, climate change has drastically affected the rain patterns and the nation has experienced consecutive dry seasons for a number of years.
There is therefore an urgent need to work towards discovering new ways of farming, water harvesting and storage if we are to produce enough food to feed the masses.
As AgroHealth, we would like to see an increase in food production amongst the rural and small scale farmers. For this to be realised, we need to discover new farming practices which are cost effective and adaptable for our context and environment. We endeavour to do whatever is possible to help our people produce more than enough food to feed themselves and to fill the store houses of the nation.
Teaching on how to Operate and and Service Farming Equipment
Many projects in rural areas fail over time because the beneficiaries are never capacitated enough to know how to maintain and care for what has been donated to them. This keeps people poor and they are never motivated to take ownership and responsibility of community resources.
This way of life creates unhealthy dependancy which is counter productive and does not advance communities for the better.
Our desire to help change this mindset through providing skills training that equips and capacitates communities with knowledge on how to fix and maintain community equipment and resources. This initiative affords communities to enjoy the benefits of whatever is given for a longer time and a heritage they can pass to the next generation.
Teaching Good Practices on Raising and Caring for Animals
Livestock is an important asset for many rural and small-scale holder farmers in Zimbabwe. Having livestock enhances the livelihoods of families enabling them to have drought power for ploughing and for pulling carts which is also a mode of transport .
Having livestock enables farmers to get meat, milk and eggs both for selling and personal consumption. Livestock is also a form of savings and can be used for security and insurance in case of emergencies.
Even though these are all possible benefits when farmers have livestock. We also realise the challenges that come with such ventures.
Most farmers do face resource constraints and risks such as changing weather patterns, environmental conditions, animal diseases, pests and parasites, accidents, insufficient pastures and expensive feeding supplements just to mention a few.
Therefore, for there to be an increase in the development and production of communal livestock. There has to be systems in place that address issues of grazing, timely vaccinations, control and prevention of diseases. This is a real felt need as most rural and small scale farmers cannot afford to buy most of the medication needed to keep their livestock healthy. We also realise the need for information dissemination and more research to characterise, understand and develop the communal livestock production systems.
At AgroHealth Initiatives, we’re committed to mobilise rural farmers to see sustainable livestock action as a community effort. We know that if done well, this action can capacitate and drastically improve the livelihoods of the farmers and also help build the national herd.
Teaching on how to Build
Having the ability to build is an essential skill and can come handy for many farmers. Farming activities require a lot of structures for personal use, animals and storage. Being able to build means one can build and also maintain the structures timely. This allows them to save money as they will not always need to hire someone to do the job for them. We want to see both men and women trained to build and be able to use this skill to cater for their infrastructural development needs on their farms and plots.
Teaching on good practices on how to care for the Environment
The environment is considered to be the natural condition of a place. This can be shaped and influenced by both natural and human activities. What people believe and the ideologies they share mold their values and dictate their principles. Every community of people inherently desire for continual development and care of their environment but very few step up to make it happen. In life It’s always easy to destroy than to build.
Two of the major environmental concerns we want to tackle are Veld ﬁres and deforestation. These pose great challenges for environmental management and sustainability and many communities experience massive widespread environmental losses through these phenomenas.
As we work with communities, we seek to bring awareness and help communities understand the consequences that veld fires and deforestation cause for environmental sustainability, identify the type of environmental degradation caused by such impact over time, analyse legal issues and identify necessary interventions that can help ensure environmental sustainability.
