Enabling 5,000 farmers to increase productivity by 240 percent, feeding 30,000 people.
Many people in Rwanda rely on agriculture for survival, but farmers often lack the inputs and technologies that can help increase their yields, improve incomes, and feed communities. By working closely with communities and the government to secure bulk purchases of reliable inputs, the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative (CHDI) helps farmers access the best varieties of seeds, fertilizer, and other inputs and be trained in improved production techniques. In order to help reduce famine in the growing areas, CHDI has expanded its cassava-growing program to 5,000 families, covering 2,000 hectares. CHDI has also helped distribute 40,000 tons of fertilizer, 100 tons of maize seeds, 5.7 million cuttings of diseases-resistant cassava, and 150 tons of improved bean seeds. This has enabled 5,000 farmers to increase productivity by 240 percent, feeding 30,000 people.
