Betty has beaten poverty and hunger - for good

Betty is a 53 year-old farmer living in Gwanda, Zimbabwe.

Because of climate change, devastating droughts and flooding have become more frequent in the region. As a result, Betty struggled to grow enough food to feed herself and her family. 

Betty, like so many others in the community, suffered from sleepless nights wondering how to feed her children.

But that's all in the past. 

Now, Betty's garden is producing a bountiful harvest. Her family are well fed and she even sells surplus food to others in her community.

All thanks to a clever approach.
