The Kijungumoto Project is a part of the 2Seeds Network, a nonprofit organization that selects passionate and assertive young people to become project coordinators in Tanzania and equips them with the skills they’ll need to thrive.
The idea behind the project is to create a multi-year agricultural educational program with the help of community partners which will help improve the food and income security of people in Kijungumoto. As the project currently stands, the first year focuses on food crops, such as cassava and corn, and moves on to a business focus in its second year. After the first year, each class has the option to decide its course of study: vegetables, animal husbandry, etc. Our hope is that our farmers will not only learn concrete agricultural skills, but will also develop their long-term decision-making processes and leadership potential as well.
