Sustainability Programme (SP)
Ensures that SFM engages in sustainable eco-friendly farming to make farming attractive to young people. The picture collage shows some of the food crops (oranges, palm kernels, pepper, okra and cassava) and products (palm oil, salt and liquid soaps) produced by farmers in small quantities that could be scaled up with better support and access to local and international markets.
There is a need for training to add value and to understand how the food markets work. These will enhance their livelihoods and enable them to earn a decent income to provide for their families, pay school fees and hospital bills and other necessities of life.
How to help: SP seeks experts in marketing to volunteer their time to facilitate workshops for SFC members. SP also seeks marketers of food crops to patronise crops produced by SFC members.
