Teaching women as great farmers
Since the end of 2012, The Women’s Foundation Nepal has run an agricultural training centre in Jhapa, an eastern district of Nepal. Women learn to cultivate organic crops and to raise animals, such as cows, goats, chicken and fish. The centre is a prototype farming centre that modernises farming methods in nearby villages and teaches farmers how to procure and increase income through agriculture. The centre’s products are sold in the local market and the income generated from this is used to support other programs initiated by The Women’s Foundation Nepal.
The training centre offers three months of basic training and six months of advanced training. After completion of a training program, each participant receives animals or vegetable seeds to start their own farm and become independent.
