Tufa and Ambagodasede Food Security (92507)
Tufa and Ambagodasede are located in Ethiopia in the Oromia regional state in west Arsi zone, next to Lake Langano. These places frequently suffer chronic food insecurity due to prolonged recurrent drought. Having seen the need SIM designed this project to meet the greatest priorities of the community. The project seeks to establish the sustainable production of food in the area. As there is access to surface water, an irrigation scheme has been developed to support environmentally sustainable, high yielding agricultural production. The project also looks to improve the health status of the communities.
With the irrigation scheme completed first, Tufa is equipped with the canal, pump house constructions, pumps and electric transformer installation. The project is now focusing on community mobilization, agriculture training and community health training.
