Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon
We are very excited to hear that the three farming groups that were involved in the training so far have together created a SRI group in the village of Ndop, Cameroon; the "Ngoketunjia SRI Seed Programme NSSP". The group is run by representatives of the three farming groups and the individual farmers are making financial contributions towards the running of the organisation.
In telling us about their initiative their comments to us where "We consider your support in sponsoring SRI to farmers in Ndop as very important for improving our livelihoods and we need to demonstrate our activeness and interest in this new innovation"
The farmers engagement and ownership is fundamental to the success of any initiative and so we are very excited by this news.
