Description
World Hope International provides low-cost greenhouses to farmers in Sierra Leone and Mozambique. This report encompasses the monitoring and evaluation of the greenhouses installed in Mozambique’s Gaza and Maputo provinces. With the greenhouses, farmers can grow crops faster and all year round, using less water and fewer seeds. Crops and seedlings grown in the greenhouses are of better quality and have greater chances for survival, because the greenhouses protect the plants from weather variations and pests. Farmers had an overall positive attitude towards the greenhouses and 87 percent of those interviewed plan to continue using them.
