Humana Fundación Pueblo para Pueblo in a consortium with Health Poverty Action, and the Khammouane Provincial Health Office, has successfully completed the implementation of a Food Security and Nutrition project with 5,000 farmer families in 100 villages of Khammouane Province. The project was funded by the European Union, and has been extended in 2021-22 in two of the six districts with additional funding.
The Farmers' Clubs are the basic project structure through which activities are implemented. The overall objectives of Farmers' Clubs are to further sustainable and climate smart production, to improve families’ nutrition through a balanced diet, to increase farmers’ wealth and to create a crop surplus for sale.
In their groups, farmers learn how to increase their yields, diversify their crops, work together more effectively, bargain as a collective, and support each other. They meet once a fortnight to discuss progress and issues, and to receive training.
Through close collaboration and new learning, the farmers make great progress.
The perspective is that Farmers' Clubs evolve to become self-sustaining in mutually supportive networks of farmers which last beyond project completion.
Core activities include:
