After visiting Mosoriot and assessing their progress, this week we visited Kamerinya Group and we are happy their demo site is all green. This group being in Kapenguria ward decided to plant vegetables and less DTC crops because the later does not do well in the region.

Some of the vegetables they have are capsicums, coriander, kales, spinach and spider herbs. They have also planted a portion of sweet potatoes and cassavas.

The group is enjoying the fruits of its labor because it is now supplying vegetables to market women and earning some money.

At our center our girls are still harvesting the maize and shelling it. Due to the heavy rains, we have scheduled the harvesting to be once a week so as to give space for the already shelled maize to dry. Due to this challenge, harvesting will take longer than usual.
