Agriculture, Food Security and Health

Chronic rural poverty, tenuous environmental conditions, and lack of access to adequate healthcare and nutrition create daunting conditions in many of Africa’s rural communities. Fully aware and immersed in these issues, DSC is supporting community groups to increase production, productivity, adding value and providing education on good hygiene, sanitation and HIV/AIDS, among others.

The main foci are:

  • Adoption of climate smart innovative farming practices.
  • Sustainable agricultural development
  • Water and sanitation
  • Value addition through food processing and packaging
  • HIV/AIDS awareness creation and care of people living with AIDS
  • Health insurance awareness creation
  • Maternal and Child Health care
  • Introducing innovative energy-saving improved fuel-wood stoves to rural communities.

Interventions to aid agribusinesses adapt to the new business milieu created by the incidence of Covid 19 – a pandemic.
