In 2012, World Renew and the Canadian government began a five-year program aimed at stabilizing food production in Mozambique and four other countries. The program sought to enhance food security, stimulate sustainable economic growth, and build a community’s ability to set priorities and implement community-initiated plans.
In Mozambique, World Renew collaborated with the Diocese of Niassa to address food security using “farm field schools,” where they could demonstrate and teach appropriate technologies and test new methods alongside traditional ones. Farm field schools rely on the adage “seeing is believing,” knowing that the time and effort invested will be repaid in farmers’ ready adaptation of methods they can see with their own eyes.
