At each diocese, we train all parish women leaders. We train them to:

  1. Make and use cooking holes with crop waste, primarily maize stalks.
  2. Make biochar from the crop waste.
  3. Mix the biochar with urine.
  4. Apply the biochar to the fields to improve crop production.

The parish women leaders promise to return to their parishes to train everyone of all faiths to use cooking holes and to make and apply biochar. They will share this training video with everyone.

To facilitate communication among the parish women leaders, we give each parish woman leader this phone with Whatsapp connectivity. We set up a Whatsapp group chat for the women to easily discuss their Sun24 activities. Most of these women have never had a phone with Internet connectivity.
