Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon
Last year we imported rotary weeders from India to help the farmers. The farmers found the weeders extremely useful - they helped to solve the problem of back breaking manual labour.
This year we asked the farmers to manufacture these locally; this initiative was managed by the women. The women found the workers, supervised the work and the design and funded some of the cost themselves.
This pictures show the first two weeders they have had made
