Event Location Details Nawgu and Amansea communities are in Anambra State found within Anambra Central Senatorial zone with more than 15 villages. The occupation of the inhabitants is mainly small scale farming. They have the opportunity and right incentive provided by their traditional rulers to respond to innovative methods of farming within their communities. The traditional ruler of Nawgu was able to invite the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture to provide agricultural facilities for effective farming within his community. Right now they have adopted new methods of developing and producing high quality food stuff to alleviate poverty and hunger. The political aspirants are supporting this innovation by building market places to provide shelter for the protegtion of the women against sun and rain. The implication is that the community is working hard to transform agricultural productivity thus, the small folder farmers are doing their best to provide food enough within the community that will prevent hunger and starvation. The case above shows that small scale farmers if given the right incentive to produce more and the means to do so, they will invest, innovate and respond to opportunities. However, within the communities, we also have traders, palm wine tappers, seamstresses all fighting to survive. However, WAC observation shows that Nawgu people are today supplying high quality food from their farm and so to meet the sustainable development goal, WAC intends to expose them on how to focus on food chain as a way to market their food.
Date(s) 16 October
Description of Activities Sensitizing them on the importance of food chain
WAC will sensitize the communities on the importance of food chain. She will embark on educating and informing them on the need for formation of network that will link each and everyone of them to other groups that may be responsible for transportation of produced food. The chain starts from the producer who produces the food that will be linked to those who can transport the food and then to those that will sell the food to the consumers. However, in food chain, they will be exposed to how each producer links to one another. In other words, in food chain, efforts are made to create relationship with each group. Food chain looks like a complex network. The producer is different from the transporter, the transporter is different from the seller, the seller is different from the buyer and the buyer is different from the consumer. Food chain could be seen as a directional pathway through which the food passes until it gets to the consumer. The food chain length is a continuous variable that provides a measure of passage that increases in value counting progressively through the linkages in such a way that it shows how it moves from lowest to highest. In other words WAC will be able to show that the producers will not be the ones to hunt for buyers. The buyers are the ones that will sell to consumers. The farmers will be shown that there is reliable transfer of each stage to one another and nobody is lost. Through these processes women will be empowered within their communities.

We bring successful women across Kenya who have undergone such challenges or even worse to motivate young girls and young mothers in schools to pursue education as the ultimate alternative to ending poverty.
We also use this platform to talk to the vulnerable girls on sexuality, self-discovery and how their environment and background should not lead them to prostitution, drugs, forced/child or early marriages, child labor and many others as this is the genesis of poverty.
