    Community Development Support Services (CDSS) a community none governmental organization is a local NNGO implementing food security in Didinga land and Ikoto County.
    The first grant CDSS got in 1996 was from the Canadian government through Oxfam Quebek. CDSS was still call Christian Development Services (CDS) . We are implementing food security project for training of farmers and provide them with agricultural seeds and tools. Now we are establishing farmers training center in Nagishot for training of extension workers who will be with the community to improve production, diversify cropping system and protect to rejuvenate the destroyed forest in order to restore the glory of the Didinga hills to bring back the lose flora and fauna. We request the funds from the Canadian government for the implementation of the training center for training of farmers.
    Thanks you in advance
