Livelihoods

Drought is a regular occurrence in Luangwa so ChildFund has focused on irrigation systems for crops. As well, in 2015, ChildFund supported solar powered fences to protect large crop areas from wild animals.  Agriculture, as the key livelihood activity, will continue to be a major focus of ChildFund’s work in Luangwa. Youth will be supported to produce chickens and grow vegetables; farmers will be supported in bee management and mushroom production, and pastoralists will be supported in milk production and pasture management.
