    Description

    Hello! Do you want to help local farmers meet their target? Then, this is the right time to do it. This organization was founded to help local farmers archive their farming goals. Over the years, we realized that farmers in The Gambia are hard working but they lock the support and the technical know-how in farming. In this light, we need experts who could teach our local farmers the techniques in farming. This NGO will work tirelessly to see the growth and development of farmers.
    Notwithstanding, we have added another program called the Harvest food chain. This program is designed to help people know the health benefits of the food they eat.
    In this light, we need people that are willing to do live cooking of their country food and teach the health benefits.
    Your cooking will be show on all social platforms.

    Daniel is a nice and caring person who laughs, joke and hard to get prompted to anger, but I always love to see and meet with hard working people.
    This team is amazing and welcoming.

    There are lots of fun here, come and enjoy your stay!

    Notice: We are excited to announce our new program 'After School, What Next?' which is aimed at empowering youth in the field of agriculture. This initiative is designed to inspire the youth of our country to become agriculture leaders and embrace the opportunities in this sector. The official launch date for this program is September 28th, 2024, where we will be organizing a rally to gather support and sustain the program.

    We will be honored to have the President of the Gambia, agriculture Minister, agriculture professionals, farmers, and students in attendance at the launch event. We are currently looking for five volunteers to grace this occasion as speakers, who are ready to share their insights and expertise in the field of agriculture. Each speaker will receive a certificate of participation for their contribution.

    If you are interested in being a speaker at the event, please send us a message expressing your interest so that we can provide you with the topic for preparation. Additionally, if you would like to participate in the program in any other capacity, we welcome your involvement. If you're interested booking hotel for your privacy on your own expense is fine by us. .

    Following the launch of the program, we will begin the important work of empowering the youth in agriculture. We look forward to your participation and support in making this program a success. Thank you for considering being a part of this initiative.
