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

Organic Farming In Village

Dear farmers, there must be something wrong with the present farming systems which has even reduced yields among farmers. "Yes it is true as we can observe and compare with other outside farmers one of the farmers said." For how long are we going to lack sufficient food in our families: Long ago people used to plant selected crops that could make more yields. The community managed to look for technical assistance through local CBO known as SINGI CBI. They discussed possible ways of improving their food security through capacity building on appropriate technologies of improving the produce. The community started gaining from better way of farming. Today the community is able to produce adequate yields. More training were conducted to the farmers through a partner organisation to SINGI CBO.
