Seeds of Change

Since 2005, CRS has been a pioneer in providing seeds and farming tools to thousands of families in West Darfur. Through an innovative voucher-based system as the one pictured here in Kulbus, West Darfur, eligible families are able to select the seeds and tools of their choice from local traders. Targeted households are those with large families, extremely low incomes and households headed by widows and orphans.

In addition to seed fairs, our team of about 114 staff in Darfur provides a wealth of services to improve the lives of families. As one CRS staffer wrote in his travelogue, “I am awed by people’s resilience and our staff’s concern for their plight.” Photo by Debbie DeVoe/CRS
