Seeking partners in irrigation project, Mali

Requested by

ONG CECOZ

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We would like to improve the lives of some 300 rural farmers by improving agricultural production. The aim is to help the farmers to produce more and better rice, potatoes, bananas and onions, so as to improve food security and income.

What is your project and how will it help?

The project area is located in Mandé in the Rural Municipality of Minidian, Mali. The project aims to develop about 100 hectares of land through irrigation. Lives of some 300 rural farmers and their families will be improved by increased agricultural production, achieved through the following activities:

- Increased areas of irrigated land
- Diversification of crops
- Intensification of farming activities
- Capacity building of farmers with new farming techniques and seed multiplication
- Creation of farmers cooperatives
- Creation of community centers
- Creation of synergies through the creation of networks between farmers

With improved food security through the above activities, the rural farmers can become rural enterprises through selling some of their produce. With increased income, there are opportunities to care for their children properly, send their children to school, build better housing, and as a community start developing social and economic infrastructures.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

People can partner with us by providing funds for the project.

We are also looking for a technical partnership.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Total costs for the project: US$520,000
