Breaking New Ground

Mama Jane Wanjiko’s neighbors are raising their eyebrows. Some are even wondering if it is the work of witchcraft. Who in the middle of a severe dry spell can have such a lush, fruitful garden as Mama Jane’s? Why, she has almost tripled the yield of a usual harvest!

Empowerment through Sustainable Agriculture and Microcredit

Before she participated in the SAFS and VSLA projects, Kadiatu’s income and that of her husband was so low that they had difficulty sending their children to school because they could not pay all of the school fees. The family could equally not afford two meals per day, and the situation always grew worse during the hunger season in July and August, when her husband had to go extra lengths to make charcoal for sale, despite the fire hazard involved. That was the only way they knew how to survive.

Much More Than a Job

In January, I spent a week on the east coast of Nicaragua, where our local partner Accion Medica Cristiana (AMC) is working with remote Indigenous communities. After investing seven years of work in the area with AMC, our purpose on this particular trip was to help envision and plan out the next phase of how we can work together. During the week, we met with focus groups and heard some amazing stories. Later we visited with several people who welcomed us into their homes and showed us their fields and gardens.

Estela Jaime Changes Her Story

More than 60 percent of the population of Niassa, Mozambique, lives below the national poverty line. Rural areas are even poorer, with no easy access to financial services. World Renew and its partner in this area, Diocese de Niassa, are setting up Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) with the aim of improving access to financing and helping farmers in periods of waiting after planting and of uncertainty about harvest outcomes.

Irrigating Crops in Mozambique

Mozambique’s population is growing at an annual rate of 2.5 percent. This has put pressure on the country’s food resources, which currently cannot meet the increase in demand. Unless prompt strategic measures are taken to increase production rapidly, food aid or commercial food imports on a large scale will be inevitable.

Doing Justice in Ottawa

When I became a Canadian, one of the most moving parts of the ceremony was when our group of would-be citizens from around the world stood as one and recited the oath together. The staff from Citizenship and Immigration Canada emphasized that it was very important for us to say the words out loud rather than silently mouthing the words—so important so that they actually walked around to check that we were making sound as we spoke.
