In this harsh, semi-arid area, where people depend entirely on what they grow for their food, and where the seasonal rains often fail, food shortages and hunger are ever-present.
In conjunction with Jomo Kenyatta University we have just started a large-scale cricket farming project to produce a constant, reliable cost effective source of food.
We have built a custom designed cricket farming unit at St Peter’s (The Pavilion?!).
easy and cost effective to farm
simple process to mill and produce as food
high in protein content, enriching a diet that is largely carbohydrate
taste good (if we can develop the right recipes!)
possible business opportunities for women’s micro finance scheme
The project is in the early development stages, and we will learn as we go!
