Support for vulnerable villagers
Othman Sharif is one the kitchen garden beneficiaries. He has been living in Kani mama village, in Sangaw area his entire life with his family, 5 sons and his wife. His main source of living is rainfed farming; wheat and barley, and livestock; sheep.
The village is far from the city Chamchamal, the road is unpaved, so travelling is difficult to bring his family’s needs. “No one has been growing vegetables in the village since the 70s” Othman said, mainly because of water shortage. Also, their knowledge about vegetable production and drip irrigation was none.Rehabilitation, Education and Community Health
