Train Women Farmers in Organic Agriculture, Nepal

Dec 13, 2007

December 2007 Update

Fruit cultivation training and support ASHA is currently promoting food security by providing training in sustainable fruit cultivation. The women participating in this training live in an area that is favorable to the production of sub tropical fruits and thus, ASHA has developed a training program to encourage the production of fruits such as pomegranate, mandarin orange, sweet orange and lemon.

ASHA’s training consisted of bringing in knowledgeable farmers on fruit cultivation to share and exchange existing information, knowledge and skills to produce fruits in this area. In addition to the fruit cultivation training, ASHA provided fruit saplings to members of Jalukeni and Jaleshwori women groups. In total 44 women participated in this training.
