Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Food Security

It was not until February 2010, when the office of Agriculture at Butla introduced a few farmers 130, In my village, 30 farmers were identified and were given 30kg o0f Merica Rice seed, thus each farmer got 1 kg. Therefore the 30 farmers planted 30kgs. When farmers harvested their crops they got 1128 kgs. To this credit, through the Agriculture of JICA has given us rice mill from late February this year. This rice will was given to farmers and it has started crushing since then the farmers have increased to over 200 with over 52 acres under rice this year.
