Family Farm Activity Plan


 

Written by Loeum Salin, Education and Community Coordinator

We have been waiting for a year of researching to trial our Family Farm Program to the community. On May this year we are going to start the first trial of this program. Two poor families who have suitable land for growing, willing to learn and use their resources will be chosen in this trial. The purpose is to encourage the families chosen to improve their standard of living using the resources they have all their best to benefit them and to provide them with training, knowledge and resources for farming so they are able to grow food for their own use and to sell. Special training will be run once a month in order to increase their knowledge and the training is being conducted every Sunday at 8:30am to 10:30am at the trainee’s house. (1 hour for the lesson and 1 hour for practice). The trainees will see the list to choose what materials they need and the cost of the materials is being charged 100% and will be repay every week during the training. And when the training is finished the trainer will be pursuing every week to collect the repayment and observe the progress of their farms and giving feedback or advice until all the repayment is being repaid (the maximum cost is $100). On the third month we will start collect the repayment (they can save some money in advance).
