Challenge

Over recent years, many harvests in this region have been devastated through storm damage and many of the farmers have found it hard to cope with the reduced income. This project will kick start their efforts and also aim to strengthen community spirit through the initiation of various cooperatives. Once working successfully the farmers will be given ownership over the program, which can become self perpetuating and financing using a micro financing model, but without money.

Solution

Providing the farmers with seeds will help them feed their families and communities, with wide ranging benefits affected over 1000 people. The project will strengthen community spirit, tying in with other programs run by GVI-CT in the region.

Long-Term Impact

This project will feed 1000 indigenous people and become sustainable into the future. If this pilot works, then future farmers will be asked to give back the initial ammount and also to provide the local school with some of the produce.
