Training of 50 farmers started!
We started the training of 50 farmers in the pilot villages. Six drip irrigation systems will be built in the course of the project.
In the needs assessment phase, many farmers asked for agricultural training. Now the first training sessions with 50 farmers started. Our experienced trainer will teach agricultural techniques, the production and use of natural fertilizers, measures against insects and crop diseases as well as irrigation techniques. Kitchen gardens for each of the farmers will be set up. We will construct six pilot drip irrigation systems with rainwater harvesting facilities.
Target of the one year program is to increase yield and income for farmers, to get access to credit, where needed, and to enable farmers and their families to eat a balanced diet. Essential part of the program is to improve resilience against climate change and drought.
