Case story – Innocent Brown

My name is Innocent Brown, a man aged 32 years old and residing in Ntauchira Village in traditional authority Likoswe, Chiradzulu district. I joined the DAPP Young farmers club project in September of 2018 when DAPP held a meeting in our village to inform us about the project that they wanted to implement here in traditional authority Likoswe that will focus on equipping us with skills and knowledge on the importance of adapting climate smart agriculture, entrepreneurship and agribusiness skills so that we can become well informed famers who are prepared for anything at all times.

As a married man who has a family to care for, I thought it wise to join the project because I knew there was a lot I would learn and I have done just that, learnt. For example, I have learnt how to make manure which I can use in my farm to have higher chances of producing more. I have also learnt how to preserve and conserve water and constructing firewood saving stoves which protect the environment among others.

Now I am happy to say that this season I have planted maize, cassava, sweet potatoes and soya and I have applied all the techniques and knowledge that DAPP field officers taught me. With this knowledge I have, I believe I will harvest more than I ever have this year on the same half acre land I have planted on.

I am thankful to DAPP and this project because it has given me an opportunity to learn things I didn’t know before. Indeed education is a never ending process.
