Nuba Mountain: Farming Tools.

Partners: LCMS World Relief and Nuba Mountain Lutheran Church.


GOAL: In this isolated community, buildings are made of hand-carried stone and farms are tilled with sticks. The only metal available to the community is from exploded bombs. People race to the bomb site to salvage metal pieces which a local blacksmith fashions into tools. Simple hoes, machetes and shovels will greatly increase food production. Farmers will provide stones for building materials and receive tools in exchange.

OBJECTIVE:

" Distribute simple tools to help increase food production.

Approved Project Support: $14,000 through 2003.

Hunger Projects : Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda.
