Agricultural expansion

Charity Birla
Posted July 27, 2019 from Cameroon

As a girl growing up I have always wanted to contribute to bring change in my community. In my community now hit by anglophone crisis, more than half of the population depend on agriculture for survival. The aim of us forming African Youth for Sustainable Agriculture though at the infant stage is to assist them with improved knowledge on farming and tools as well as improved seeds and hybrid animals to expand production despite financial difficulties. So much discouragement has risen but we have not given up.  We organise workshops to train farmers  while looking for funds to start the project.

You are most welcome to world pulse. And to be honest I like your project. Agriculture for women and girls. This is one field that many women fear to touch probably due to cultural up bringing and so on. However, I think work is for all and am glad you are also taking it up in your country.
I will look forward to hear more about it here. Have a great weekend.

Thanks for the appreciation it's an encouragement to me.

Hello, Charity,

I love how resilient you are amidst the challenges your country face with the current crisis there. How brave you are for not giving up, but instead you are more giving by facilitating workshops to the youth.

If you have time, kindly check the Resources Page on World Pulse for possible funding opportunities. There are calls for proposals or grants from time to time. It would be great if yiu can find a grant that matches what you are advocating.

Please continue to post your stories and updates here. Welcome to World Pulse!
