Simeon Lumbe and Emelda Adhiambo – Homa Bay County Green Growth Initiative

Date grant awarded: 02/04/2018

The Homa Bay County Green Growth Initiative advocates for local organic farming. The project serves over 35 families and growing. The purpose of the project is to reduce the use of agrichemicals and promote alternative sources of income along the lake Victoria shores. As of March 2017, the local organic farm has harvested and expanded their certified fruit trees and orchard. The project has established about 1000 tree seedlings, which are given to members for expansion of the project to continue providing organic farming in Nairobi markets.
