“Growing vegetables on a larger scale with good management is our goal. We know it will provide the much needed household income and a way out of poverty for smallholder farmers in rural areas like ours.”
In the training that CPAR provided for the women in the village, Lidya learned about planting fruit trees, watering, pruning and marketing strategies, and now displays confidence in her future plans for generating income.
One of the implementation strategies of CPAR-Ethiopia is to address the food insecurity problem of the Jarso Woreda community through a group approach. When people work together in addressing development problems, they overcome issues that individuals would not be able to overcome on their own.
“I like the way CPAR works in our village. Widows and other women from low-income households have an opportunity to participate and make the best use of opportunities to change the situations in our homes.” – Skolastica
