Challenge

Youths living in remote areas in west Mindanao are severely disadvantaged and most of them are severely malnourished. Most have difficulty going to school or completing the school year. The reason for this is poverty and lack of farming inputs in order for their parents to develop their farms and earn decent income from their harvest.

Solution

This project will provide farming inputs that the youths and their families will be able to use in order to improve their livelihood and get decent income from farm production with the produce for their own food and surplus to be sold to neighbors. Farming inputs will include seeds, farm tools, organic fertilizer and small farm animals.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement of the well-being of the youths and their families so that they are able to contribute fully to the life of their communities.
