Vicente Paulo Cossa is a member of the epicenter committee in charge of food security. Through the trainings held by The Hunger Project, he has learned a great deal about farming and used this knowledge in his own garden to increase his income.
Increased alignment of environment programs with income-generating activities by THP-Mozambique, such as food processing activities that led to jam being canned and sold, will ensure that all aspects of the epicenter continue to reinforce the importance of sustainable food availability in 2012.
Silva Joaquin Ngovene and his neighbors are smallholder farmers in Mozambique. Programmatic support from THP has empowered small farmer associations, like Silva's, with trainings and resources to increase yields and feed communities.
