Many poor communities in the country depend on farming for their main livelihood. The constant impact of natural calamities and unpredictable markets, affects farmers directly as they become prone to losing all their crops and/or falling in debt. ADRA promotes ways to help small farm holders overcome these challenges.
Introducing and promoting low-cost farming methods, like the System on Rice Intensification (SRI), is one way of helping farmers produce sustainable food source and livelihood. Moreover, ADRA's Bio-intensive Gardening (BIG) program has been helping women grow their own healthy source of food right at their backyards. This ensures better nutrition for the family, helps minimize food expenses, and provides a modest but regular source of income when surplus is sold to the community.
