Our Current Programs

There is urgent need for innovative and conscious interventions that will enable the community systems to increase food (and water) security, adapt to changing climate while contributing less to climate change.

We strive to devise and implement interventions through such new generation techniques as Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA), rainwater harvesting technologies for efficient irrigation and domestic water supplies. These activities shall leverage on the existing synergies and interlinkages among a number of SDGs.

 

As SAFI we work towards enabling the local target communities to develop and improve well-structured and properly managed community forests of native and fruit trees. We work in partnership with the communities, schools, health facilities, churches/mosques, local administrators, regional development authorities, research institutions, governments and international community with which our goals converge, to achieve this agenda.

These initiatives will effectively respond to SDGs 15 (Life on Land) which highlights the need to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Essentially, to achieve a sustainable blue economy as discussed in the 2018 conference in Nairobi, there is need to take a local to international perspective by creating an enabling environment for local communities neighboring these water bodies to harness their full potential for improvement of sustainable livelihoods.

As SAFI, we find it vital to be agents of change in this respect to promote the development of this noble course, in any small ways that go a long way to foster the realization of opportunities for communities living around Lake Victoria and its watershed.

There are many obstacles that can hinder organizations, government entities, communities or individuals from realizing the full potential of the goals they set. These are often than not related to the lack of proper awareness or insufficient relevant know-how on matters leading to the goal. In the rural areas of least developed countries (LCD), the population is generally illiterate or semi-illiterate and this is true also, for the communities that we work with.

Our team and associates are well vast on the scope of SAFI’s working thematic areas and it is in this basis that we strive to widen the thinking and enlighten the communities, CBOs, pupils/students, government officials on ecosystem conservation and remediation methods, climate-smart techniques and policy development process for the benefit of nature and its biosphere.
