the impact of silos during covid-19
'' Before Act4Africa trained us, I usually had very poor yields from my garden simply because I lacked the right knowledge and practices which not [only] affected the quality of my grain, but the harvest as well. I'm grateful to Act4Africa field staff- who through the pre-harvest training sessions availed us with agronomy knowledge to which I attribute to this bumper harvest.''
"I never in my life knew that there was an alternative cheap and efficient technology, that could be used in testing the moisture content of grain. Using the [method taught to me by Act4Africa] was and has been one of my greatest highlights as a farmer and beneficiary to this program."
"With this silo in place, I have been in position to store my grain in a safe and clean way from rodents and weevils which were previously a havoc before getting this container. I am so grateful for the container, and very happy with the surplus that I intend to sell and complement our household income."
''I have observed the effectiveness of the silos and training you offered. It has enabled food security, and bumper harvests, among the beneficiary members. My question is of whether there could be more opportunities for other community members to join this program."
