Woadze Tsatoe Vegetable Farm
With the generosity of donors like you, we can purchase better agricultural equipment to ensure that our farm thrives.
Due to overfishing in the Volta River, the village faced a serious threat of food insecurity as their primary source of income shrank.
After four years of research by New York University students and professors, a pilot farm was set up along the bank of the Volta River. The region's rich, fertile soil was ideal for growing cucumbers.
Thanks to the help of donors and agricultural experts, the community reaped its first harvest later that year.
Due to this success, the farm was expanded from fifty square meters to one acre. A more advanced irrigation system was installed. Furthermore, the farmers received better training from the Agriculture Extension Service, allowing them to significantly
improve their yields.
The farm continues to empower the community, providing them with fresh vegetables all year round.
