Local Farmers  Engaged In Project

A project has started in Ba where local farmers have gained a portable nursery to nurture their plants during this humid weather conditions and to propagate seedlings for local farming community.

Western Charity Alliance executive director Jitendra Naidu said they will not stop here in supporting the rural farming community through their Nursery Project.

He said the initiative was possible through the Western Charity Alliance in conjunction with Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation.

“This project is not only for farmers but also for vulnerable and destitute in the rural community to sustain their livelihoods,” Mr Naidu said.

“This will be seen throughout Western Division as our main objective is to sustain people’s livelihoods through healthy living and eating fresh foods from their backyard.”

Mr Krishna Naidu, 57-year-old farmer from Veisaru, in Ba, was overwhelmed to receive the Nursery and 15 types of numerous vegetable seeds from Vodafone to start up his new livelihood.

He thanked Vodafone for its continuous support to the people.

Mr Krishna added that the seeds and the nursery supplied to him will change things to his life and his families as he is unable to get in to employment due to his unstable health condition.

Early this year the Western Charity Alliance will be partnering with
Ministry of Youth and Sports and Ministry of Agriculture in a project to boost assistance to the local community.

Meanwhile, Mr Naidu added that year 2015 will change many people’s livelihoods and eating styles which will have a direct effect the non communicable disease (NCD) issues.
