A community-based organisation in Narok is training 60 Maasai women on a new farming technology.
Community Development Initiatives director Agnes Waindi yesterday said the technology, referred to as hoophouse farming technology, will increase food production in the region that was affected by the lethal maize necrosis disease.
"The training seeks to enhance continuous production of food through the use of up-to-date technology without relying on the erratic weather conditions in the region," said Waindi.
She said the organisation has received support from the Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund from the USA to conduct the training.
Speaking to the media yesterday in Narok South, Waindi said the training targets the most vulnerable women who live in rented houses.
