Help us Equip a Modest Training Center for Farmers

Summary

Building the capacities of small farmers to grow their crops in a profitable manner is a complicated task and the usual practice of doing it one-shot is not effective. Our goal is to do season-long training from seed sowing until post-harvest activities for high-valued vegetables will tremendously increase the incomes of poor, upland farmers.

Challenge

Farmers need highly technical skills in order to increase their profitability in their farming enterprise. We will solve this by the conduct of season-long training from growing the crops until harvesting and processing. In order to do this we badly need equipment such as a small garden tractor, farm sprayer, organic shredding machine, fertilizer injector and cultivating hand tools.

Solution

If we are able to purchase the equipment we will be able to improve the efficiency of our gardening activities and conduct the training in a superior manner.

Long-Term Impact

The El Nino is not a regular occurrence but comes every 7-9 years or so. If our beneficiaries will be able to survive this El Nino occurrence and be successful in raising their crops again, then hunger and malnutrition will be abetted.
