"Only agriculture can lift Africa out of Poverty"




Ripples agrees with south African Farmer Theo de Jager who believes agriculture is key in combating poverty and malnutrition. In his speech directed at the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists, which can be read here: http://ow.ly/y7SR30c8dB, de Jager concluded that no other sector would be able to lift the continent out of poverty. Many organisations have seen the benefits of farming for Africa and have shared equipment, skills and knowledge.  


At Ripples we gave this a little twist in our new program Ripples Farms. At Ripples Farm the women of Ogidi village will gain the skills and knowledge to grow food to feed their families. The project also includes a Business Incubator Centre where 2000 women and 1000 youths from 20 villages will be trained by our partners on Agroforestry, Permaculture and Business.
