Vouchers Revive Livelihoods

Farmers in the dioceses of Nakuru and Kericho in central Kenya register to receive vouchers. The project was funded by the European Union in partnership with Catholic Relief Services, local dioceses and CAFOD (the Caritas agency of England and Wales). The seeds allowed farmers to continue working their fields following 2008 post-election violence. Each family received about $200 worth of vouchers to purchase seeds, fertilizer, tools and small livestock from select vendors who redeem the vouchers for cash at the diocesan offices. In total, 4500 families benefitted from this project.
