Community-based programs strengthening food and nutrition security in Kenya
SANGO-Kenya strengthens food and nutrition security for women smallholder farmers, their children, and other household members in rural Kenya. SANGO-Kenya’s 130 women smallholder farmer participants receive in-class training from experts in agriculture and nutrition as well as in-field support throughout the year. Our programs focus on African traditional foods and other nutritious, climate-resistant agricultural crops that grow well in Seme’s challenging farming environment.
COVID-19 and SANGO-Kenya
During the global COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to monitor the health and safety of the SANGO-Kenya families and assess the impact on food and nutrition security. Kenya’s rural villages are experiencing a decrease in food availability, an increase in prices, and a reduction in income due to lost jobs. Our work is more important than ever and we will redouble our efforts to pursue innovative ways to fulfill our mission. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to keeping you updated in the months to come.
