Unsustainable agricultural practices have caused diminished food production, food insecurity and malnutrition. These practices include: reliance on two cash crops (maize and sugarcane), use of non-certified seeds, and dependence on chemical fertilizers. Farmers have found themselves in a vicious cycle: increasing chemical fertilization to enhance short-term crop productivity, but damaging the environment, and lowering yields over time.
A baseline survey, with the help of an ACE Africa food security officer, has led to forming largely female community groups. These groups have learned about environmentally-friendly agricultural techniques: e.g. sack, keyhole, and tyre gardening; organic compost production and pest control; as well as the nutritional value of local crops which both preserve natural resources and reverse the damage caused by excessive chemical fertilization. Each group has received startup seeds and tools to establish flourishing kitchen gardens. ACE Africa has also provided follow-up training.

Impact

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Since Ace Africa first engaged with Bungoma County, over 73,000 community members have established 19,157 kitchen gardens. 20,437 community members have transitioned from food insecurity (one meal a day – or less!) to food security (three meals a day). Innovative, sustainable agricultural techniques have improved soil and water quality, reduced groundwater contamination, and diminished nutrition-based diseases (night blindness, scurvy).

Iniciativa de Vida Comunitaria de Ace Africa utilizando la propagación de semillas, la conservación agrícola y la producción de fertilizante orgánico en el condado de Bungoma, en Kenya occidental
Las prácticas agrícolas insostenibles han causado una disminución de la producción de alimentos, inseguridad de disponibilidad de alimentos y  malnutrición. Estas prácticas incluyen: la confianza de obtener ingresos de dos cosechas (maíz y caña de azúcar), el uso de semillas no certificadas, y la dependencia de los fertilizantes químicos.  Los agricultores han estado atrapados en un círculo vicioso: teniendo que aumentar la fertilización química para incrementar la productividad de la cosecha a corto plazo, pero perjudicando el medio ambiente y disminuyendo la producción a largo plazo.
Una encuesta básica, con la ayuda de un agente de seguridad de alimentos de ACE Africa, ha resultado en la formación de grupos comunitarios mayormente femeninos.  Estos grupos han aprendido técnicas agrícolas que respetan el medio ambiente, por ejemplo: la jardinería cultivando en sacos, en pequeños plantones y en neumáticos; la producción de abono orgánico y el control de plagas; y también han aprendido acerca del valor nutricional de las cosechas locales. Todas estas técnicas preservan los recursos naturales y reparan el daño causado por la excesiva fertilización química. Cada grupo recibe semillas para comenzar y herramientas para establecer jardines de huertos  que abastecen su cocina. ACE Africa también hace un seguimiento de su capacitación. .

Impacto

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Desde que Ace Africa comenzó a involucrarse en el condado de Bungoma, más de 73.000 miembros de la comunidad han establecido 19.157 huertas-jardín para abastecer la cocina, 20.437 miembros de la comunidad han hecho la transición de la incertidumbre de obtener alimentos (¡una comida al día, o menos!) a la seguridad alimentaria (tres comidas al día). Las técnicas agrícolas innovadoras y sostenibles han mejorado la calidad del suelo y el agua, han reducido la contaminación de las aguas subterráneas y han disminuido las enfermedades derivadas de la malnutrición (ceguera nocturna y escorbuto).

Lo que harán a continuación

[/fusion_title][fusion_text]
Ace Africa tiene la intención de contactar a personas con similares intereses para  poner en marcha ideas innovadoras respecto al agua, el aire y los alimentos. El premio WAF tendrá un doble efecto: respaldar la labor de ACE Africa y apoyar sus solicitudes de fondos para incrementar el éxito en la producción sostenible de alimentos y la conservación del agua.

不可持续发展的农业生产模式已导致农作物减产、食物供应无保障以及营养不良的情况出现。这些运作模式包括:过度依赖两种经济作物(玉米和甘蔗)、使用未经检测的种子及对化肥的依赖。农民发现自己陷入了恶性循环:持续增大化肥使用量促使短期作物增收,却破坏了环境,导致产量随着时间而下降。
在Ace Africa粮食保障官员的协助下,人们进行了一项基线调研,催生了由女性为主导的社区团体。这些团体学会了环保的农业技术,例如:‘袋装’、‘钥孔’ 和 ‘轮胎’园艺; 有机混合肥料的生产和病虫害控制;还有保持当地作物的营养价值(这样一来可保留天然的资源,二来可逆转过份使用化肥所带来的破坏)。每个团体都得到了首批种子和工具,去建立茂盛的家庭菜园。Ace Africa也会提供后续的培训。

所带来的变化
