In many regions of Nepal, many people still don't have sufficient food all year round

Increasing yields: polytunnels and small livestock

Most people in our project regions are subsitence farmers, and many families are unable to produce enough food to last them all year. The results are malnutrition and undernorishment, stunting, or even deaths due to simple illnesses like diarrhoea. By introducing polytunnels for vegetable production, local farmers can improve their harvests and families have access to a more diverse diet; better poultry rearing techniques and improved breeds allow them to eat more nutritious food. Many families are even able to generate some additional income by selling vegetables on the local markets.
