What's the best thing about Temwa? When Dorothy, Temwa's Forestry Project Officer, was asked this her is what she had to say:

'Working as a team to ensure we reach those communities who are isolated and remote with a community based model which truly works'

Here is Dorothy (in the pink blouse) with her fellow team members, who all work and live in the field. An inspiring group of dedicated people!

Godfrey Chiumia lives in Mzgola, a rural, uplands village only accessible by a single dirt road. In this video, he talks about the challenges for entrepreneurs in the area, underlining the importance of start-up capital and market research.  Mr Chiumia will soon have the opportunity to test his business skills as he joins one of our pilot beekeeping groups.

Rose is a subsistence farmer who lives hand to mouth. She was selected to join the Farmer Training programme because she has to support six orphans. Previous to this she could not grow enough food for the family to eat; during the dry season they often went hungry. In 2010 Rose joined Temwa’s agricultural project and since then she has learnt many essential skills: how to make compost which improves the soil’s fertility; sowing techniques; organic pest and disease management, and harvesting techniques, use of wetlands in the dry season and irrigation techniques. 

On her plot of land Rose now grows a range of vegetables including: potatoes, cabbage, spinach, maize, groundnuts, cassava, green beans and tomatoes. In 2011 with profits from the surplus crops Rose was able to purchase some more land and grow more food. She is now waiting to receive a DEKI micro-finance loan to expand her grocery business.
