Bright ideas

Nepal is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to rising food prices because of its reliance on imported food from India to meet national food shortfalls. And as over half the population live in remote hill and mountainous regions, transport costs mean that their food costs even more.

Farmers in these areas are at the mercy of the rain, and regular droughts combined with poor monsoon rains, along with a decline in the quality of seeds they’ve used for generations, mean that many farming families regularly go hungry.

But thanks to drought-resistant seeds from Oxfam, some training and a community seed bank, things have turned around for the village of Dola.

Resident, Bahadur Thapa has seen the benefits of this Oxfam bright idea:

"For the last three years our harvests have declined, and although it's the first time I have used the drought-resistant seeds and I have been really impressed with the results – our wheat and potato harvest this year was best I’ve ever seen. The most impressive solution I can think of to our problems is to irrigate the land and to use these new improved seeds."

"I really want a bright future for my grandchildren. I want my granddaughter Kanchan to be educated. I want her to be independent and to make her own luck in life."
