Dreams to Beams
Dreams to Beams is excited to announce our Agriculture Project in Kanono village, in the Zambezi Region of Namibia.
This impoverished region experiences severe drought throughout the year. In addition, the poor soil conditions make it impossible for the farmers to grow anything other than maize. As a result, malnutrition is a serious issue for the people of the Zambezi region.
Dreams to Beams, partnering with Agri Connexions Africa, is bringing agricultural technology to the area which will allow local family farmers to grow vegetables year round:
These measures will allow families to eat heathy meals 12 months a year and help eliminate malnutrition. Any excess crops can then be sold at local markets, generating much needed income to these families, 70% of which live in poverty.
Dreams to Beams and ACA are equal partners in this project and in May of 2017 D2B founder Jim Norgate travelled to the Zambezi region, to see the project and meet the families receiving the aid.
