Improving livelihoods

The project aims to support two rural farming communities, situated in a sub-district of Kisauni District, Mombasa. It will implement the Haller Approach, a five-stage holistic model that enables vulnerable communities to restore their soils, build capacity, achieve economic security and improve the environment. The first stage ensures that communities achieve water security and have access to sanitation. The second stage delivers “climate-smart” farmer training at a demonstration training farm and in the community. Stage three introduces more advanced farming methods, with the help of a smartphone-based farming manual, The Haller Farmers App, aimed at improving yields and enabling communities to earn an income. Women will also be trained in income-generating activities. The final two stages, delivered throughout the project, focus on women and children and consist of community training in disease prevention, nutrition, hygiene and family planning.


The NGO:
Founded in 2004, the Haller Foundation is a British charity. Its work is based on the techniques of Dr. René Haller, a Swiss environmental and tropical agronomy specialist. Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of farming communities in Africa.
