The agriculture and environment sector distributed 5,000 papaya seedlings among host community beneficiaries in December 2020, through the ‘Livelihoods Support and Women Empowerment Project’. 1,583 people received winter vegetables seeds, 1,458 people received fencing materials, and 996 people were trained on homestead gardening. A total of 24,886 poultry chickens were vaccinated this month. These household-based activities will help equip the rural low-income families with income-generating opportunities and help fulfill the nutritional needs of their families. The agriculture team continued the care and maintenance work to ensure the desired outcome and maximum benefits.
