#GIZworks Kenya: Food security through hydroponics

Kenya is currently home to approximately 500,000 refugees. About 191,000 are hosted in Northern Kenya, a semi-arid region with hot and dry climate that makes agricultural production difficult.
Together with Miramar International College, we´re implementing hydroponic agriculture technology to support self-reliance and ensure continuous local production of fresh vegetables. The modern technique requires little space as plants grow in a water-based nutrient-rich solution without soil. Especially during the COVID-19 period with movement restrictions four hydroponics that were already in use helped to secure nutrition.

To cushion the community against future food supply interruptions in the future, seven additional greenhouses will be constructed. 50 beneficiaries have passed trainings in hydroponic technology and basic entrepreneurial skills, such as developing business plans. They will be responsible for running the greenhouses as business enterprises.
