World Vision’s main goal is to reduce the impact of climate change by investing in drought-resistant seeds. Even though the nature of the climatic conditions is unpredictable, it is crucial to implement response mechanisms that rely on solutions that prepare and prevent the most vulnerable communities from any future climatic catastrophes.
To minimise shocks, we believe in the possibility of introducing these seeds that, even in the absence of rain, can be distributed to families so that they can guarantee their diversified diet. By educating families on climate smart agriculture and providing them with drought-resistant seeds, they are not only equipped with means to continue getting an income, but also gain understanding around what type of crops they should be planting and when.
World Vision continues to seek funding to implement more sustainable projects that will help drought-affected families in Angola to become more resilient, and the Farmer Field School methodology implemented by the organisation for more than 10 years has been successful from the start.
The experimental Farmer Field School in Milonde benefits around 140 people, from the 240 households residing in the community.
