To provide food and training opportunity
The Women’s Foundation Nepal has run an organic farm in Bhaktapur since 2004. The farm is designed to teach the benefits of organic farming to Nepali women and provide skills training to women to allow them to become farmers. The farm provides food for the residents at the Shelter Home and in addition, serves as an extra source of income to support other WFN projects.
The farm grows mushrooms, vegetables, wheat and millet and raises chickens. The women who train at the farm learn to harvest seeds and apply natural fertilizer. The aim is to show the women how not using chemical fertilizers will make the food taste better and make the animals healthier.
Make a donation to run and expand the organic farm or volunteer with us to teach us more about organic farming practices.
