Its harvest time for our students who received their starter kits of seeds and tools. 

A total of 7 tons of cowpeas and onions, averaging 350kg per student, means theyve grown enough for themselves and to sell the rest for a small profit to purchase essentials and re-invest in their new farm.

We managed to get our agricultural starter kits to students in Burkina Faso just in time for them to sow seeds before the rainy season started, resulting in a great yield of crops for this year. 

We havent got any more funding for this project for future years, so please get in touch if you would like to help to fund this. Each kit costs £200 and pays for one more young person to be able to start their own farming business.
