Challenge

Rampant use of dangerous pesticides in farming has become all too common in Malaysia. Organic farming can provide safe and healthy food for the population but is hardly being practiced in this country. The farming communities living at the foothills of Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia are worried about the health of their families but find it hard to adopt organic farming due to the lack of basic farm equipment. There was a slow increase in the number of organic farmers in the area (2-2014, 25-2018).

Solution

When rural farming communities are skilled and confident in organic farming practices, and not impeded by a lack of farm equipment, more organic crops will be planted in the villages near Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia and throughout the country. Farm income will be enhanced, and the health of the communities will be ensured.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 1000 villagers in organic farming allowing them to grow organic vegetables and rice to feed their families with healthy and safe food as well as to gain income from the sale of organic produce.
