Commitment to Action

Niger Agricultural Training Centers

Commitment by

Kimse Yok Mu Foundation

In 2015, Kimse Yok Mu committed to train 150 smallholder farmers in Niamey, Niger on cultivation, harvesting, and marketing techniques for high-value crops. This project will increase farmer income and nutrition for their families by dramatically increasing productivity and introducing more diverse crop varieties. Farmer beneficiaries are selected from areas with low agricultural productivity, where rain is limited and variable, and no irrigation infrastructure exists. In addition to training, farmers will receive irrigation tools including water pumps. This effort represents a scale-up of a 30 person pilot, and if successful, according to monitoring and evaluation conducted by the African Union, Kimse Yok Mu will expand this model to its work globally.
