Summary

The ScaleSchool is building an innovative and extensive training program for Nepalese farmers, which aims at improving their livelihoods through sustainable, organic farming practices. A peer-to-peer training methodology enables literate and illiterate farmers to participate in it, and active progress monitoring and assistance ensure their path towards becoming successful organic farmers.

Challenge

We are facing tremendous challenges with environmental conservation and climate change, agriculture being a significant contributor to the problem. In Nepal, agriculture lacks investments and inclusive training, lagging behind in development. The farmers have difficulty obtaining knowledge due to low education level and a large illiteracy rate. With increasing financial inputs of conventional farming and climate change effects, these farmers become ever more vulnerable.

Solution

We are developing a training providing Nepalese farmers with an opportunity to learn organic farming techniques and social entrepreneurship. The training integrates various practices, like agroforestry and permaculture, known to be productive and carbon sequestering. In order to scale up the impact, we train farmers to become trainers of their own village communities. The farmers are accompanied after the training in their advancements and challenges, to ensure asuccessful transition to organic.

Long-Term Impact

The project has the potential to enhance the livelihoods of more than 900,000 farmer families in Saptari district and paving the way for the rest of Nepal to do the same. The increased organic food production will also ensure healthy products for the local and countrywide consumers and more resilient food security for the Nepalese population. Through the documentation of the project, we will be able to share the knowledge with the rest of the world and create a global impact.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
