They also lack resources for farm production such as draft animals, farm tools and implements, and seeds for planting. Oftentimes, their families experience perennial hunger due to the meager yield of their upland farms spelling of ten months of hunger periods or lean months.

How will this project solve this problem?

To develop a 2 hectare learning farm for the Datal Basak Organic Farmers Association (DABOFA). The farm will be the venue for knowledge and skills development on Sustainable Agriculture principles and technologies
