The Right Tool in the Right hands

Farmers learn how to use backpack sprayer
Farmers learn how to use backpack sprayer

Mavuno’s work is and has always been a proof of the old saying that if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.

Hundreds of farmers in eastern DR Congo are being equipped every year with the knowledge they need to move from subsistence farming to building sustainable agribusinesses. The training program include the following:

  • Facilitating the formation of self-led, Grassroots Organizations (GOs) and its ongoing operation
  • Training them in sustainable and improved plant and animal agriculture techniques and best practices
  • Instructing them in small business management and financial literacy
  • Providing access to capital through local Village Saving and Loan Associations (VSLAs)

In the picture, Kahindo (on the left) one of the 60 heads of household in the "Agricultural Value Chain and transformation of the Church and the Community" project is learning how to use the Backpack sprayer for the very first time.

Agricultural sprayers are a great investment for farmers. It is an eco-friendly manually hand operated spraying machine used to spray medicine in agriculture field. Using this tool, Mavuno's partners/farmers will from now on be usind this tool to protect their crops from weeds, fungi, insects, etc.  it can also be used for irrigating and supplying water to your fields and crops.

 Thank you for your cointinued support.
