“I want to make money for my children’s education whilst I’m still alive and healthy”

x of y
William Kivuva Wambua inherited a dying farm from his father. A nearby sand dam has helped transform his farm and enabled him to send his children to school via money from his produce.

William can now grow pearl millet which is highly drought resistant and can be ground into flour and mixed with milk to make porridge. Medicinally the grain flour is mixed with water and used to treat diarrhoea.
