Project Competitive Advantage:

Unlike other agricultural projects, this one is a multi- benefit kind of project that is to benefit a big number of families a year. With the use of permaculture methods, this will in turn contribute to the social and ecological development for different actors in the region. This project is also built to be self sustaining after the first five years of funding. The produce at the training farm is to be earned from in order to maintain the machinery distributed to the community members as well as the transport used to mentor and the re-supply to new participants every year.
