Crop Production

 

AfricaWorks (AW) Mozambique overall objective is to economically empower rural farmers through establishing sustainable, viable, community based, scalable and market driven models in crop production. The idea is to allow these farmers who will become our clients the opportunity to grab control and thus gain ownership over their poverty infused circumstances.
The majority of our client’s currently share their wealth by supporting an average of 6 orphan children and 2-3 sick people affected by HIV/AIDS.


Here’s how the crop production sector works:


Each of the irrigation schemes are located in a village where interested individuals form a group and apply for the opportunity to partner with AfricaWorks. AfricaWorks in collaboration with community leadership will select farmers through these applications.
AfricaWorks is often also approached by existing associations which are first assessed before they partner with us. Partnered with AfricaWorks clients will be monitored, trained and assisted, financially, technically as well as in micro enterprise management, in order to improve their level of productivity and thus income.
All partnerships with AfricaWorks under crop production will run under irrigation schemes. This decision enables greater and more efficient production rates as farmers would no longer have to rely on sporadic rainfall. Farmers/clients will be able to produce all year round and thus earning a stable income throughout the year.
