I work for an organisation called Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) in Zimbabwe. We are a networking organisation which helps farmers learn new techniques so they can have enough food for themselves and their communities.

Comic Relief recognises the negative impacts of climate change especially on the very poorest people in Africa. We’re supporting projects which help people in Africa change the way they live due to the effect climate change is having on their lives. We fund slum dwellers in Ethiopia to help them become better prepared against drought and flooding, as well as sheep and cow herders in Kenya who are increasingly finding it hard to find good farmland for themselves and their animals. We also fund small scale fair trade farmers throughout Africa to diversify what they grow as some traditional fair trade crops in their area are no longer growing so well.
