RTV partner families are subsistence farmers living on less than one acre of land. Our program provides communities with a series of trainings to improve their farming practices such as land preparation, benefits and application of composts, use of organic pesticides and compound sack growing. Alongside trainings, RTV provides agricultural inputs to each village. These inputs support food security, meal diversification, individual crop sales and the development of community cooperatives.
With our methodology, we have seen RTV communities earn 56% more in agricultural income sales than their peers and increase their average annual income earned from their farms by 1.7x.
“Before I was not familiar with quality agricultural practices. We used to plant crops but yield small harvests. But with our new trainings on how to properly make manure, how we can plant, how we can create composts, I have seen great agricultural improvements, particularly with our harvests.” – Evasta, Buhozi Village
