Bringing water to the crops thanks to an irrigation project

An irrigation project in Mozambique, run by Save the Children with UKaid support from the British government, has enabled women like Falesse to grow onions and tomatoes, which they can now sell in large quantities at the market. The income helps them to provide for their children and improve their living conditions.

 

In the Zambezi valley of Mozambique, climate change has affected hundreds of thousands people, who largely depend on rain-fed subsistence agriculture to make a living. With funding from UKaid from the Department for International Development, Save the Children works with farming communities affected by recurring floods and drought to enhance their resilience to the impact of climate change.
