Food Security

In partnership with KEMRI, we were fortunate to receive funding and support to distribute food to those most in need in the Ganze area following a long period of drought in 2016 and 2017.

We are incredibly grateful for the support given to us by KEMRI, not only financially, but also through staff volunteering their time for the distributions, helping bring short-term food relief to dozens of families.

From 2018, rather than food “relief”, we are putting food security front and centre for our club and prioritising this as a goal in our new strategic plan. From innovative farming research to sustainable growing practices, we hope to work with experts and interested partners to ensure drought does not mean famine for families in our county.
