Seeds for Solutions
Southern Chad currently hosts 116,000 Central African refugees as well as 70,000 Chadian returnees who fled violence in the Central African Republic. Seeds for Solutions, a project run by the Lutheran World Federation country program in Chad along with partner organizations, empowers refugees, internally displaced people and host community members to become self-reliant and improve their livelihood by working together. This is done by securing access to farming land, teaching agricultural techniques, providing seeds for crops and vaccinations for animals, offering vocational training, and providing small loans to set up viable and sustainable businesses.
The goal of the project is to support refugees and host communities to work together and become self-reliant, so they do not depend on food distribution.
