Farmers’ Club Kwanza Norte

Farmers’ Club Kwanza Norte was launched in July 2015, targeting 1,500 mainly female farmers. Key elements include organization in clubs, skills training and capacity building in the field of agriculture, plus literacy, entrepreneurship, leadership, nutrition and health. Just as in Kwanza Sul, the latter part of 2016 and the start of 2017 saw the distribution of insecticide treated mosquito nets, linked with malaria awareness campaigns, as part of an effort to reduce the incidence of this debilitating disease among farmers and their families. A number of club committees have already organized savings clubs to support members with transport or medicine costs, should the need arise.
FC Kwanza Norte is still a relatively new project, but after just one year approximately half its members were using the new skills being taught. Literacy training reached the majority of farmers, and basic business skills were being taught to 75% of club members. As a result of the latter, farmers were deciding for themselves what to grow, and where, how and to whom they would sell their produce.
