2009 Planting Season begins in Lyantonde
Rains began in the last quarter of the month of March marking the beginning of the planting season in Lyantonde district. While some farmers begin clearing their fields for the new planting season, some families in rural Lyantonde don't know their next course of action among which are child headed households affected by HIV/AIDS and high poverty levels which is a characteristic of most households in rural Lyantonde.
ICOD plans to resume free seeds distribution to vulnerable members of the community in its efforts to build a food secure community. The organization calls upon every one to extend their support to this program.
