The project is for 30 landless, marginal and poor farmers inBana village. This fundraising is important because these people have limited financial capacity and lack heritage rights to acquire more than one hectare of agricultural land. They are also faced with financial difficulty to purchase inputs and limited knowledge and skills on smart agriculture. Many of these farmers have also lost interest in farming for commercial purposes due to poor yields, post-harvest challenges and lack of access to favorable market conditions. Thus, I have chosen them as they are the most vulnerable group in the project area and have been ignored.
The money shall be used to mobilize 30 landless farmers into a Producer Association and trained on agroforestry, composting, group governance, bookkeeping, savings and marketing. The beneficiaries shall then be supported with farm inputs and equipment. In addition, one Farmer Field School will be set up to serve as a practical learning-cum-demonstration centre for farmers. They shall be linked to input suppliers and vegetable buyers. A scheme for community-based agroforestry tree nurseries as well as assistance for farmers to plant trees on theirfarms will be set up as well.
The money is needed by July 2019 and appreciate donations of 1000 US Dollars.
