Dimitra Clubs and Farmer Field Schools face off against COVID-19
Dimitra Clubs– voluntary groups that meet to resolve local issues – is one such example. Whether going door-to-door in villages to raise awareness about protection measures, installing hand-washing basins, or sewing masks, Dimitra Club members have helped equip isolated villages with vital knowledge and tools.
Knowledge and skills acquired from Farmer Field Schools have allowed isolated families to continue to earn a livelihood. During lockdown periods when unable to meet face-to-face, members of Farmer Field Schools shared knowledge and information online. By selling their produce, these families, despite being isolated, can maintain their livelihoods.
