Summary

Typhoon Yolanda has stripped away the economic source of countless hill farmers in the Philippines. IsraAID's Agricultural and economic Long term restoration project will provide on going training, and physical support to rehabilitate this long term economic source that has been destroyed. IsraAID will establish a program whereby farmers will receive training, technology, equipment, and on going support through expert agronomists so that agriculture can once more sustain local population.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Typhoon Yolanda devastated the main capital and livelihood source of countless farmers. The Typhoon forced farmers to attempt to regrow inferior vegetation which has since further depleted the land and food sources for the community. Typhoon Yolanda destroyed the lands and all agricultural equipment necessary for long term sustainability. leaving the local village farmers, and families without proper income or food sources.

How will this project solve this problem?

Rehabilitation of farming techniques and crops guarantees food security, improves livelihood restores family dignity and reduces the cycle of familial poverty and malnutrition. The project will provide long term assistance through expert training, technological assistance, and on going support to restore local livelihood.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through the training local farmers will gain skills and tools to increase their income, and train their families for long term capacity building. Farmers who will benefit of IsraAID's program will distribute 10% of their income to the community in the first year, and are required to train two farmers per year as a measure of community wide capacity building. The project therefore has a community wide reach through on going in-community training.
