The Horti-Sempre Project interventions aim to create changes that will benefit their target beneficiaries beyond the project period. Programmes are therefore designed to provide systemic and sustainable change.

Through Horti-Sempre support, I was trained and started to make my own substrate. This reduced my seedling production costs as previously I depended only on a commercial substrate, which is expensive and prevented me from mass production. With my own homemade substrate, the seedlings are more affordable to others, and I can produce and sell more of them.
