We will provide education on small-scale integrated farming technologies to 500 poor farmers in order to emancipate them from the perennial lack of resources and capacities. The venue of our education program will be our training facilities and integrated demonstration farm. Aside from farming technologies, we will also teach them basic skills so they are able to venture into farm businesses.
The correlation of poverty and lack of productive inputs by ultra-poor farmers is the lack of education on how to improve their farming. They often see farming as scratch and eat type like chickens do and there is a need to change this mind set by educating them that farming should be seen as a way to improve their lives not just source of drudgery and misery.
Education is the key and in the rural areas among ultra-poor farming families, this is most often the lacking factor. They are mired in their own unproductive practices and situation and there is a need to change this via alternative, farm-based educational strategy taking into consideration their needs and situation in the farm.
Farming families if they remain very poor and unproductive do not contribute meaningfully to the welfare of the community and the need to re-invigorate them in the manner fitted to their needs is paramount.
