Our Cooperative Agriculture Program

 

We a cooperative farming in Liberia, using a groundbreaking model that combines farming tools/resources needed with tailor-made business support.

Acting as partners in the Liberian community, we can focus on what is really important: stability and growth of businesses. We never take a single dime from the people we work with that doesn’t come from income we’ve helped generate. To alleviated stress, we will provide free educational services to the children of farming partners. 

The years of war devastated Liberia's human and institutional capacity, demolished the country's physical infrastructure, and fundamentally damaged productive agriculture. Liberia’s agriculture productivity is very low and post-harvest losses are exceptionally high, reaching up to 45 percent in some areas. Depending on source and definition, between 64 and 95 percent of the population live in poverty. Food insecurity is widespread, with children especially vulnerable to this difficult circumstance.

Our woman empowerment program brings in experts and local business owners to teach the chosen topic of trade.

We have partnered with local organizations that give us a network of farmers and local residents to Establish a self-sustaining farms, greenhouse, poultry farm as a source of revenue for the organization, and to provide healthy food for students and staff.

We currently have 500 acres for this Project. Our production includes palm, rubber, pepper, avocados, organic herbs, coconut, and black beans.
