In October, CRESS colleagues visited agricultural groups in the Mijale and Imvepi refugee camps. All of the groups have been managing their crops effectively and are progressing well. Some have already transplanted their crops.

The office's poultry project has seen success in September and October managing more than 150 birds. They hope to grow the project in November to target the Christmas market.
In November, they will also begin a new project; beekeeping and honey. This will provide new skills, income, and training opportunities, as well as increase the health of their garden and produce.
