Challenge

The youth do not love farming anymore and farming is not attractive to them. The reason for this is that they see farmers as very poor and marginal and production in the farm very low. The youth most often opt to go to the cities to look for job but their skill fit is not congruent with what cities and towns need. They end up in more misery and poverty.

Solution

We will advocate regenerative agriculture that nurtures the land, improve land productivity at the same time increase the incomes of the youth. We call this permaculture or low-energy recycling and organic farming using local resources found in the farm. We will do this by training the youth and providing them with initial farming inputs so that they can start and expand on their own.

Long-Term Impact

Small farms and the condition of the small farmer is what is needed in order to improve and sustain the planet, not large, mono-crop farming systems. Proving regenerative farming as a way of life and solution to poverty in the rural areas means improvement in the general welfare of the local communities.
