Laudato Sì Week: Community Resilience and Development (Day 8)


The Sustainable Agriculture Project of Riimenze (SAP-R) activities contribute to the community resilience and development to the local population through awareness creation and knowledge transfer. The awareness are raised through group meetings with beneficiaries and radio talk shows to the wider communities in Western Equatoria State. SAP-R also contributes to that aspect considerably through distribution of agricultural inputs to the target groups.

We support various groups such as rural farmer households with improved seeds, tools, livestock pairs such as pigs and goats and improved bee hives. Other inputs include services such as the nutrition programme that works to prevent and combat malnutrition among children also by training mothers on the use of local resources to produce highly nutritious food additives. Additionally, we train women in saving scheme and provide them with start-up capital for small scale business enterprise at household level. Generally, our intervention has built the local capacities to an extent that people are able to do things for themselves differently in more effective way than before. SAP-R encourages and supports farmers working in groups because it instills and fosters transfer of knowledge and practical skills. It empowers each individual by learning from each other during communal work. Communal work is building our societies, improving agricultural production and food security in order to alleviate poverty.
