Take a look at the Lutheran malaria program in Tanzania!
Hidaya Omari farms three acres of land including corn, beans and onions in the Pare Diocese in Tanzania. Because of her community participation and reputation as a good onion farmer, Hidaya was trained as a paraprofessional for the livelihood project with the Lutheran malaria program in Tanzania. The malaria program supported by the ELCA Malaria Campaign in Tanzania is implemented by Lutheran World Relief (LWR) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania. With her training, Hidaya teaches 50 onion farmers improved farming techniques and malaria prevention methods. Through the support of the Lutheran malaria program, Hidaya has increased her own onion quality and yield. Before the program she was producing 50 to 60 bags of onions on one acre. Now she is producing 80 bags with even greater quality. In addition, her family has not had any malaria cases since her training with the Lutheran malaria program which is supported by the ELCA Malaria Campaign. Photo courtesy of LWR.
