“We used to cut down trees to make room for farming/crops. Unfortunately, there was a decrease in productivity and an increase of soil erosion. Through LEAD Foundation and Justdiggit, we have embraced restoration approaches like Kisiki Hai that nourish soils, improve our food security and livelihood.”

Fanya Juu & Fanya Chini

Do it yourself!

With these methods you dig contours within your farmland in order to harvest rainwater. Fanya Chini prevents the rain falling outside of your farm from entering the farm, inhibiting erosion of the fertile soil. Fanya Juu prevents the rain falling within your farm to flood away, increasing the water availability for the crops on your land. In the end it helps you to regreen your own land!
