Simple Tools

Simple Tools
With the help of World Neighbors staff, these farmers in India have devised very simple tools to reduce the amount of time and manual labor when plowing their fields.

This simple tool has changed the farming techniques in the region and has raised crop production. (view small | med | large | orig)

Livestock Vaccinations

Livestock Vaccinations
Through their newly devised vaccination program, these rural farmers in India have increased the life expectancy of their livestock, thus increasing their income and improving their lives. Because of the training these men have recieved from World Neighbors, these animals now receive regular vaccinations against common diseases. After the animal is immunized, their coat is marked with a color coded stripe to help the farmers track the vaccinations each receives. (view small | med | large | orig)
