Secondary Schooling & Nutrition

In the central highlands of Ethiopia, food security is extremely fragile.  The staple diet is comprised of an unleavened bread called ‘injera’ made from teff, a low-yielding indigenous crop that requires much labour and care.  Traditional sedentary agriculture accounts for problems of overgrazing, deforestation and soil exhaustion, placing Ethiopia’s agricultural productivity levels as one of the lowest in the world.
