Connecting, Transforming and Sustaining Livelihoods

County Focus - June September

Preview: 
Description : 

In this quarter, we have carefully selected a number of articles that you will not only enjoy reading, but have the capacity to transform lives. To start with, we elaborate the importance of prioritizing agriculture in our counties for us to have meaningful impact on the livelihoods of the majority of a people. As Frances Moore Lappé correctly put it, “The real cause of hunger is the powerlessness of the poor to gain access to the resources they need to feed themselves.” That is all that the counties can provide, and the world will be free of hunger.

In the spirit of fighting hunger, we bring you insights on reduction of post harvest losses in both Irish potato and maize, two of the most important food and root crops in the country. Find out how the indigenous chicken, can be translated into wealth, with tips on breed selection of the same. Find out how Bamboo can be a source of food as well as playing its role in environmental conservation and making of other products. For the farmers at heart, migrating to the urban centres should not deter you from pursuing your passion! Learn about it in this magazine.
