By Margaret Mead – CHAMA TANZANIA
With over 60 percent of the African continent’s population in rural areas and dependent on smallholder or family farming, the risk from the COVID-19 pandemic to food supply chains, market access and nutrition is high. CHAMA has brought together private sector partners, economists and business leaders to identify these risks and gaps in response efforts while proposing solutions.
Addressing journalists through virtual interview from his Canada residence, the CEO of CHAMA and Co-Founder, Ambassador Dr. Olugu Ukpai said that “The concerns COVID-19 poses to public health cannot be separated from the food security concerns. Hence, it is important to prioritize production of the food supply chain and livelihoods as an integral component of the response to the crisis.”
To this end, a green house for agricultural revolution has been set up in Tanzania as a pilot project under the supervision of the Country Coordinator, Warrior Kaspar. The laudable project has attracted both government officials and private sector investors to visit the CHAMA greenhouse in Tanzania.
It’s hoped that it will bring the much needed food security in the post-Covid-19 food supply chain in the rural community schools and CHAMA day care in Tanzania. A big congratulations to CHAMA Tanzania team of warrior volunteers for their commitment to ensure that no child go hungry!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
