  2. Capacity Building: Farmers are provided with training in modern, sustainable agricultural practices, equipping them with the knowledge and skills required to adapt to evolving agricultural conditions.
  3. Resource Access: The project ensures that participating households have access to essential resources, including quality seeds, fertilizers, and farming tools, with an emphasis on environmentally friendly practices.
  4. Livestock Management: Livestock management training is incorporated to support the development of supplementary income sources, such as dairy farming and poultry production.
