ASHI aims to deepen the technical know-how of farmers by providing them continuous education thru Financial Literacy and Advanced Farming Concept Training. This is provided at the center level which are mostly located in off-grid areas. While, the solar-powered systems utilize open water sources like lakes, rivers, streams and even creeks. ASHI aims to provide a long-term assistance to the farmers by providing adequate farming facilities.
All centers lack with proper irrigation. The geographic area of the centers was far off the distant area. All centers lack with electricity. Watering the yields were hard. Members have difficulties on having authentic examples of different farming techniques, since staff used Manila papers alone in giving knowledge.
Solar water pump systems meet a broad range of water needs. With the abundance of sunlight in the centers from AGAP Matikiw, AGAP Pulot, AGAP Magalolon, and AGAP Balubad, this solar-system added advantages in storing water for use when the sun is not shining, eliminating the needs of battery or fuel on generators, enhancing simplicity and reducing overall cost. On the other hand, solarized televisions were the answer for the staff and members to have fact knowledge on the modern agriculture.
With the help of solarized powered system in the areas of Matikiw, Pulot, Magalolon and Balubad, the members and staff would benefit the following advantages of solar-energy system; >Solar power water pumping system would help the members to have a proper irrigation system that would help on watering the plants; >It lessens the struggle of the members, on fetching water on a quite distant well or stream; >Members would have real life techniques in farming by watching videos.
