“I had thought my land was too old to produce 20 bags of maize!! In the last two seasons, I harvested between 5 – 7 bags of maize on my 1.5 acres of land. After training from YICE and getting a small loan, I bought cow dung (organic fertilizers), super grow and packed maize seeds. I planted as guided, added the cow dung, and after second weeding, I sprayed with super grow. My maize was so good, and I managed to harvest 20 bags, not considering almost 5 bags that we ate before harvesting. This season I will rent more land and hope to buy land in 2016 to expand my garden”

“It is always a joy for me to teach my fellow villagers about hygiene and sanitation – I am excited that when I do this well, I get a small pay that help me support my family. YICE has truly changed my life and my family is so grateful”
