Enlarged Classrooms Meet Needs of Students and Farmers – Diocese of Central Zambia

I received seeds and fertilizer from Anglican Diocese of Central Zambia that enabled me to plant [corn]. Because of the support, I harvested a lot more than before, invested in [a] simple drier, thus enabling me to store and sell some to earn income. This support greatly helped me and my family to produce enough food for the family. I now sell the surplus food and [am] able to pay school fees and supplies for my children.

An Innovative Project Meets Two Needs at Once

Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a majority living on less than $2 a day. Farmers must learn better farming practices, including crop diversification and cultivation of indigenous livestock. Additionally, Zambia needs trained literacy teachers to improve the student-teacher ratios in rural areas. The Anglican Diocese of Central Zambia will address both of these needs in a creative project focused on the Mkushi/Fiwila area. Specifically, the church will improve its current facilities as a means of expanding opportunities for training both farmers and literacy teachers. This will allow the existing Teacher Training College to triple the intake of students, from 25 currently to 75. While the student teachers are on vacation, the church will use the improved facilities to train farmers. Initially, 25 farmers will participate in a residential program where they will learn new farming methods. After a month, they will return to their villages under the guidance of government extension workers. At the next school holiday, another 25 farmers will be trained, allowing for 75 farmers to be assisted annually. A 74-acre demonstration farm will also be developed with funds from this project in order to both train farmers and to plant marketable cropsto bring in money for the diocese, ensuring sustainable training programs.
