Over the last century, the world is constantly battling with one challenge or the other, and in this particular decade one challenge seem to threaten our very existence as humans. The challenge is so enormous that it is capable of wiping humans off the surface of the planet. That challenge is called “Climate Change”. Climate change has been in the human vocabulary for a long time and different people, both the scientifically minded and the novices have given the term their own form of interpretation to the subject. However, events happening around us has shown that this term ought to be taken seriously. Whenever you turn on the television, you hear of floods in several countries; you hear of wildfires consuming a whole area large enough to be called a country. Countries like Bangladesh and Maldivesare all sinking into oblivion due to a constant barrage of flood waters in the monsoon seasons. While these natural disasters are not new to humans, the scary part is that these disasters are increasing in frequency, and more and more people are being displaced or killed by these disasters.Scores of people are becoming refugees in their own countries, and for the first time in history we hear of the term “climate refugee”. Countries under threat have had to purchase lands in other territories in case that their countries disappear completely from the map. Countries like Maldives have made alternative arrangements for their citizens in countries like Sri Lanka, while countries like Kiribatihave had to work out a deal with neighboring countries like Fiji. As if these scenarios are not scary enough, now you have conflicts erupting all over the world due to the effects of climate change. In countries like Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia and Nigeria; farmers and cattle herders have continued to fight vicious battles over grazing lands that are gradually disappearing. These cattle herders who have been grazing their cattle closer to their home regions have had to travel farther to find fields to graze their herd on. This has resulted into conflicts with farmers whose lands are being encroached upon by the invading cattle herders. Thousand of farmers and herders have died in their ensuing conflict, because the land is simply not green enough or wet enough to take care of their needs.
Looking at these grim scenarios, one maybe wondering if this is the end of the human race as we know it. When humans can’t simply feed themselves because the lands are becoming dryer, and the food supply is under threat; then one may be forgiven for thinking to the extreme. However, there is a solution on the horizon that could provide the much-needed help to reducing the effects of climate change. One of such solutions is the Africa House Hydroponics Technology. While Hydroponics is not an entirely new solution to the world, the Africa House is reinventing and expanding the coverage of the Hydroponics Technology to help Africa tackle its ticking time bomb of food shortage and conflicts due to climate change. The Africa House Hydroponics is customizing the use of Hydroponics to help African farmers and African citizens produce food without soil, while utilizing some of the most sophisticated technological approach to fighting climate change, The Africa House Hydroponics Technology utilizes the readily available raw materials in Africa for the construction implementation of the hydroponics farms. In order to eliminate the importation of otherwise expensive materials from Europe and the West. Traditionally, Hydroponicshas been thought to be a western technology that is completely out of reach for the African citizen. And that if you needed to set up hydroponic farm, you have to bring in experts from the west who will bill the project owner hundreds of thousands of dollars to impellent it. The Africa House has demystified the concept of Hydroponics by breaking it down into its fundamental components, and by providing the technical know-how to all Africans interested in this technology. The Africa House Hydroponics Technology started after the Africa House partnered with NACCIMA(The Nigerian Association Of Chamber Of Commerce Industry Mines And Agriculture) with the view to combating food shortage in Nigeria. The Africa House Hydroponics quickly spread like wild fire to all the 36 states of the federation in Nigeria in partnership with all the chambers of commerce in Nigeria. After the huge success in Nigeria, the largest black nation on the planet; the Africa House Hydroponics quickly spread to West Africa and the Sahel region, southern part of Africa, and East Africa. Today the Africa House Hydroponics has spread all across Africa and is gaining ground in Western Europe where the Africa Diaspora are establishing hydroponic farms in the UK, Spain and other parts of Europe.
The Africa House Hydroponics focuses on two vital core principles of providing technical know-how to Africans on Hydroponics Technology; and also helping African countries and the millions of Africans set up Hydroponics farms across the continent and the world. Under the Africa House Hydroponics project, the Africa House provides support to governments and individuals who want to set-up hydroponic projects both on commercial and small scales, regardless of their location. The Africa House ensures the success of the Hydroponics Farms on the continent of Africa by proving raw materials, technical support and constant training to ensure success. The Africa House Hydroponics hopes to help Africa reduce food shortages in Africa, prevent conflicts due to the effects of climate change, and to ensure the general wellbeing of Africa & Africans.
