Project Launch:

Nangimbibi is composed of 84 households totaling 360 people. 46 households out of 84 are supported by the government. The community suffers from extensive soil erosion in the rainy season which often leads to hunger epidemics. Most community members do not possess an adequate amount of land to feed their families and as a result are only able to eat once a day or once every two days. Due to these challenges, the community has decided start a potato farming project. This project will provide funds the community will use to purchase land, potato seeds, and manure. With increased health and household income generated from potato harvesting, the community will set itself on the path to pursue other development initiatives and increase quality of life.
