Agronomist Gnayem during training
Dear donors and friends,
The Israel Palestine Center for Research and Information is delighted to announce that, with your help, we have achieved our goals and completed our work on this stage of the project! Within the next few days, we will submit a final report with a more detailed summary of our accomplishments.
Over the last three months, the 20 participating farmer members of the cooperative completed the training program provided by our team of agricultural experts. As a result, they are now trained in cutting-edge agricultural practices and GlobalGap international export standards. With the funds that you and others provided, we were also able to purchase a compost spreader, a multi-nozzle pesticide sprayer, and handheld magnifying glasses for the participating members of the cooperative. These inputs, in addition to the training provided, will help the farmer members of the cooperative grow larger quantities of produce that meets higher standards of quality.
Based on the successes and lessons learned from this pilot project, IPCRI hopes to implement similar projects in other West Bank communities in the near future.
We at IPCRI are deeply grateful for the generosity of all of our donors—large and small. Your contributions have provided these farmers with the tools to improve their businesses and the economic conditions of their communities. Stay tuned for more information in our final report.
All the best,
