Give a contribution to ADDA´s smaller development projects for poor farmer families in Cambodia and Vietnam!
ADDA´s Organic Project increase the cultivation and marketing of healthy organic foods in Vietnam.
Group formation is essential for success in ADDA´s Farmer Field Schools.
Here is the group ´Solidality´ in Tanzania.
It is the plan that more than 10,000 Tanzanian small scale farmers over the next 3 years will be ecologically certified in order to build a stable supply of organic sunflower seeds to the company Vantage Organic Foods Ltc., - an Indian-owned feed company specializing in supplying organic raw feed to the international market.
The project in Tanzania is supported by AMTD, Agricultural Markets Development Trust - a joint venture established between DANIDA, SIDA, Irish Aid and Swiss Development Corporation.
For several years, ADDA has been working to create the prerequisites for launching such an extensive project. ADDA will use its well-known concept of Farmer Field Schools to teach farmers to cultivate sunflowers according to ecological principles. The task is to teach farmers to cultivate sunflowers according to the requirements of ecological standards and to ensure, that they meet the quality requirements that the sales company Vantage has in order to buy them. In addition, ADDA must help to establish a good relationship between farmers and the company Vantage, so that after the project period they have acquired the necessary logistics systems for storage and transport of seeds, and have formed trade agreements that can form the basis for further development. See the project description here.
In December, the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) and Paccom hosted a conference on reviewing the National Program. A ceremony was held on recognition of NGOs with significant contributions towards poverty reduction and sustainable development of Vietnam over the 2013-2017 period. ADDA was selected as one of the NGOs to be honored at the ceremony. Mr. Hung from ADDA-Vietnam is very proud of being there on behalf of ADDA, and he thanks for ADDA´s effort and contribution to the success.
