Schools have been known to be effective channels of communication as well as agents of change. It is in this light that CAST has been working with schools to promote conservative agriculture, production and utilization of cassava in communities. Through a project dubbed resilient Schools, CAST is working with 10 schools in Ganze Sub County. The project employs a simple, easy to follow and unique methodology illustrated in a guide to achieve its objective. The guide is a pedagogical approach aimed at educating pupils on conservative agriculture, cassava production and nutritional issues on cassava through encouraging learning by doing and also inspiring pupils to put into practise what they learn not only in school but especially at home thus uplifting the communities by building communities resilient to drought.
Below is a link to the guide.
