    In JFFLS field activities will gradually become more complex with a bigger variety of crops and activities undertaken. After learning about basic agricultural practices, combinations of various practices will be introduced. For example you may end up with a number of different crops growing in the same field, all at different stages, some that you are just planning while others you are harvesting. This is an example of diversity, which is important for various reasons. For example combining diff erent types of plants help in giving different nutrients to the soil so that it can continue being fertile and healthy. But how do we best combine different crops without creating conflict? For this good planning is needed. Moreover people need a diversified diet, based on nutritious and balanced meals; they also need to have different ingredients in order to be healthy. In this module participants will also learn about gender roles and the different roles of girls and boys in society and how th ese compliment each other. It is the diversity of people with different characteristics and skills that create an interesting society. Failing to understand personal differences and diversity can be a cause conflicts, gender stereotypes and violence within the home and community. On the other hand by understanding and appreciating diversity, we can contribute to a better life. In this module the concept of diversity will be explored from different angles. The module contains sample exercises for each of the learning activities, plus a number of sample energizers and cultural activities that can be used to keep the participants engaged and reinforce their learning. The provided activities should serve as samples to be modifies and applied as appropriate. The important thing is that all main building blocks of a typical JFFLS session are included in each learning session.

    Managing water in a field is very important for growing a healthy crop. Too little or too much water makes a big difference in the way a crop develops. When growing a crop outside of the rainy season, a farmer has to find ways to supply water to the crop. Therefore it is critical that the participants understand the water cycle, and the best ways of collecting, using and conserving water. Water is also essential in our own daily lives. We need it to drink, to prepare food and to wash. The partic ipants need to understand the importance of clean water for preventing disease and for their own personal hygiene. This module contains sample exercises for each of the learning activities, plus a number of sample energizers and cultural activities that can be used to keep the participants engaged and reinforce their learning. The provided activities should serve as samples to be modifies and applied as appropriate.

    When about to start a JFFLS programme the first few months will be very important in setting the stage for the whole learning process to follow. Participants need to get to know each other and feel comfortable in the group. They will also need to choose an appropriate learning site for holding their JFFLS sessions. Ideally a place with good shade and enough space to hold meetings with easy access to water that is close to the school and to the learning field. Access to a learning field is a lso necessary, as well as to make sure, when necessary, that a feeding programme is in place. During the first few group sessions, the group should also discuss what they expect to learn and what they will be doing in order to make their fields and their lives healthy and productive. In order to prepare boys and girls for the activities to come it is also important that the participants gain an understanding of the cropping calendar as well as the life cycle of plants and animals and how thi s relate to their own life. This module contains sample exercises for each of the learning activities, plus a number of sample energizers and cultural activities that can be used to keep the participants engaged and reinforce their learning. The activities should serve as examples to be modified and applied as appropriate.
