Fulani Herdsmen Challenge

The media reports incidents of brutal murders all along their path as they drive their livestock Southward. The social media see them as a tribal and religious menace.

A Rural Education Success Story

The school relies entirely on the generosity, not of western donors or international organisations, but of the community in which they live to survive. They have a small plot by the railway line where they grow vegetables to supplement the maize, beans and rice donated by the community.

Build An Aquaponics System

You can turn a small yard, a corner in a community garden or an unused space in your home into a thriving vertical farm for vegetables and fish.

Sean Brady, the aquaponics projects coordinator at the Center for Sustainable Aquaponics and Nourish the Planet in Loveland, Colo., showed us how to build a system from scrap he found around the greenhouse.
