VSO Project: Chokoma, Salima


A grant of £250 was awarded to support the Chokoma Project which aims to facilitate improvement of livelihoods in rural communities by focusing on income generation, capacity building and food security while also providing labour, land, expertise and time for its members.


The bicycle trailers assist in collecting scrap paper and delivering products such as the fuel briquettes, fuel efficient stoves and groundnut oil from the Chokoma Project to sell in the shop. Thanks to FOMA, two extra persons can be assisted with a job through the Chokoma Project, and will be able to sustain their families. At the same time it gives an opportunity to generate more income for Chokoma Project as well.
