Train Women Farmers in Organic Agriculture, Nepal

Feb 26, 2007

February 2007 Update

In 2007, ASHA/Nepal plans to follow-up with women groups that were formed in the last two years by offering training workshops in group and fund management, sustainable agriculture, seeds and vegetable exhibition. ASHA/Nepal will also facilitate team-building exercises including group picnics, folk song competitions and community cleanliness programs.

ASHA/Nepal will take new initiatives in sustaining these women’s groups without external support. These initiatives include establishing market relations between the women and potential buyers for agro-products, activities to improve literacy skills and to strengthen their capacity for loan management and regular group monitoring.

In early January, all three women’s groups have received training in group and fund management to enable women to manage loans among their members. ASHA has also facilitated activities in sustainable agriculture including preparation and use of organic manures, farmyard management and cultivation in slopes and seed saving.
