Our Projects

ASAL Farming

Through hydroponics farming, MIF has been able to champion technology integrated agriculture in Turkana, Mandera, Makueni and Isiolo Counties. The most vulnerable community members were targeted such as the Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). By the end of the trainings, these communities had acquired the technical know-how for production, and currently ongoing with production for their own consumption and retail.

ASAL Areas

Greenhouse Activity

Smart Farming in Agricultural Hubs

Within Nairobi and the surrounding counties in Kiambu, Kajiado and Nyandarua, MIF has set up farms for commercial production of both leafy and fruit vegetables. Being the first of its kind in the region, MIF set up a Aeroponics Potato seed production unit in Nyandarua. The local farmers are now assured of supply of disease free and high yielding potatoes and are enjoying bumper harvest season in and out.

Smart Farming In Informal Settlements

Through various partnerships with both local and international organizations, we have trained farmers in Mukuru Informal settlement in Smart Farming and distributed Smart farm units within the settlements.

 

In Mukuru informal settlements, MIF has increased food production through the set-up of simplified drip vertical hydroponics system to cater for subsistence food demand. MIF also intends to support the set-up of hydroponics units for the school feeding program.

 

Through this initiative, families are now able to access safe and nutritious food while utilizing the small spaces available.
