Descriptif
Mennonite Central Committee Canada is supporting Food for the Hungry Ethiopia with year a five-year conservation agriculture project in Assosa and Bambasi districts of the Benishangul-Gumuz region totaling $2.1 million.

Most smallholder farmers in this region are not able to grow enough food to last their families year-round. In order to survive, families are often resorting to unsustainable practices, including cutting bush to sell as firewood and charcoal selling off their livestock.

Project activities include training model farmers on conservation agriculture production methods, supporting Farmer Training Centres, and coordinating other forms of support for farmers.

About 53,500 family members are benefitting from this project. This project is a part of the Global Affairs Canada-funded conservation agriculture grant.
