Milton Aloo, Exposing Women to Cassava Value Chain

Date grant awarded: May 31, 2016

Our planet is getting warmer and climate change is causing increased rates of food insecurity and thus family conflict and suppressed socioeconomic growth, specifically in Nairobi, Kenya. Milton Aloo notes that the drought resistant crop, cassava, has helped sustain communities through difficult times and thus has created the Exposing Women to Cassava Value Chain project. This project aims to identify and facilitate seed multiplication efforts alongside training in producing high quality cassava, processing the crop into various by-products and marketing strategies.
