youth do in-pot different fruit species like improved mangoes and trees that
they sell on nursery beds which are sold in town areas. They do the work from

of the leaders, Sylivia Wopata, when asked about how food security is ensured
among the people she leads, had this to say, “Families in Bunamwani do participate in agriculture ever since we went through PEP and
Livelihoods training, and this culture has enabled us to practice food
security in our homes. The information gathering and Analysis tables helped us
to understand how much land we have, how much we cultivate, consume as
families, and what to sell for income and home welfare. We also learnt how
much to store/reserve for dry seasons. This method has kept families together
and healthy and children do not move to neighbors in search for food”.
