Togo Agricultural Development
Region: West Africa
Competency: Agricultural Development
Join ILAD in bringing hope to Togo farmers living in absolute poverty. Investing as little as $10 per month will empower a brighter future for one family through education and new farming techniques. How many families will you empower?
This program is dramatically changing the economic situation of farming families throughout southern Togo. The annual income from cotton on 2.5 acres is $300. Farmers who are planting organic pineapples and peanuts taught in the program are earning an annual income of over $1,000 on 2.5 acres!!
Over 65% of the population of Togo, West Africa, lives on less than $2 per day, but together we can change that.
ILAD-Togo is currently running a demonstration farm that provides agricultural training to rural farmers. This program:
- Provides Togolese farmers with hands-on training in organic pineapple and peanut production, dry season irrigation, and crop diversification directly on the demonstration farm or via regional farmers’ cooperatives organized by ILAD
- Potentially increases the annual income from $300 (production of 2.5 acres of cotton) to over $1,000 (production of 2.5 acres of peanuts and pineapple) for farmers who begin producing organic products taught in the program
