CARE

The Climate-change Adaptation for Resilience & Empowerment (CARE) Project is an ADRA International funded project.

This pilot project is to empower one youth community-based group (CBO) in Kotido to adapt to greenhouse farming technology and produce vegetables throughout the year. The main objective is to contribute towards resilience and household food security.

Expected outcomes are:
• Increased knowledge and skills in modern agricultural technologies
• Improved access to sustainable supply of nutritious vegetable for food and for selling by the targeted households through piloting the greenhouse technology
• Increased access to water from an improved water source by targeted beneficiaries.

Some of the key activities of the project include:
• Establishing a solar powered well with water points for irrigation and water for household consumption (community water kiosk)
• Establish 250sqm greenhouse for the youth to grow vegetables
• Train the youth on greenhouse farming technology and agronomic farming skills
• Train the youth in vegetable preparation and preservation methods
• Support linkage and collaboration with district production officer and agricultural research institute to provide technical support to the youth
