First Farmstew Training in Zambia

Apr 4, 2022 | Education, Events

FARMSTEW INTERNATIONAL partnered with WG to organize a Training Workshop in Zambia for the first time.
These workshops were gratefully and mostly sponsored by FSI and facilitated by a senior Farmstew member of their team from Uganda, Mr Edward Kaweesa. The workshops were held close to one of the WG areas, Masase Village and in Lusaka. WG were part sponsors. Total participants were 5 in Masase, with all 5 graduating.

FARMSTEW (farmstew.org) stands for Farming-Attitude-Rest-Meals-Sanitation-Temperance-Enterprise-Water. These 8 “ingredients” are used to train local leaders in holistic community development. FARMSTEW hold fast to John 10.10 where Jesus words “I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly”, are evident in every aspect of the Training and delivery to the intended recipients.

The first Farmstew training session was carried out in Masase Village Chieftainess Serenje, Chitambo District, Zambia. Training staff from Farmstew headquarters carried out a theory class, garden practicals and taught simple methods of producing soy milk and tofu from soy beans with locals from the area.
