This training followed on from the Christian Farming workshop held in Moshi in October last year. Both workshops were organised with NEFEAT, the Network of Faiths on Environment Action in Tanzania, a multi-faith group working together for action on the environment.
Another 30 participants attended this second training session, where Islamic history and theology was shared by Abdalla Kamwana from SUPKEM. Abdalla explained how farming had helped Islamic communities for thousands of years, by providing a strong foundation of food security, trade and enterprise.
Raphael Magambo then took the participants through the 6 Ps of Islamic Farming: Plan, Prepare, Plant, Provide, Protect and Produce. You can read more about this on the Islamic Farming page here.
A serious faithful farming transformation could well be underway in Tanzania.

After some practical lessons outside, participants received certificates of attendance and left after prayers were made. One participant commented, “Pray for us. Tanzania will never be hungry again!” Let us respond to this call and look to see a transformation of faithful farming in Tanzania.
