Descriptif
Mennonite Central Committee Canada is supporting Migbare Senay Children and Family Support Organization (MSCFSO) with a three-year agriculture and livelihood project in Oromia and Benhangul-Gumuz States, Ethiopia.

Chronic food insecurity and poverty are major issues that the region faces which is perpetuated by a decline of agricultural production, poor soil fertility, climatic variability, and lack of resources to purchase necessary inputs. In response, MSCFSO will work with communities to increase food security by restoring and enhancing soil health as farmers adopt conservation agriculture principles. This includes working with local institutions such as government officials to increase their capacity on conservation agriculture so that support for conservation agriculture is strengthened and maintained long-term in these communities.

Over three years, this project aims to work with 3,750 households (approximately 6,937 individuals). This project is part of the Scaling Conservation Agriculture- Based Sustainable Intensification (SCASI) program, which is being funded and completed in collaboration with The Development Fund Norway.
