Kiwi donations are helping to improve agriculture in two districts in rural Vietnam, Tra Linh and Quang Uyen.

The people living in these two rural districts are mainly farmers. Produce they grow is used to feed their families, and any extra is sold to cover the costs of their essential needs. However, the farming techniques used in the districts are basic.

Projects underway to improve farming

Working with communities and local organisations, a programme to improve agriculture was put in place. Thanks to Kiwi donations, we’ve been able to make progress.

In the Luu Ngoc commune, we’ve conducted training sessions specialising in advanced techniques of raising cows. In the Cao Chuong commune training sessions in potato growing techniques have been carried out. 142 people have attended the sessions, and participants consist of village heads and farmers.

Donations also went towards providing materials to help conduct the training sessions. In the Cao Chuong commune, 7kg of potato seeds were provided for 81 households. While in the Quoc Toan commune and Xuan Noi communes cows were provided, to help establish a cow bank to promote cow rearing.

Thanks for your support

By improving agriculture in these rural districts, families will benefit from a more reliable food source and an increase in household income. Thank you for helping to make this happen.
