Give wings to women entrepreneurs in rural India
Give wings to women entrepreneurs in rural India
Through this project, we anticipate the growth of a network of empowered young women entrepreneurs in rural southern India. They will not only provide for themselves and their families but will also bring to the local women farmers, a wealth of new ideas from around the world to improve their lives. This will contribute to the transformation of the food system in the local communities, leading to healthier diets, sustainable livelihoods and a reduction of agriculture's environmental impact.

Making a cooling chamber for tomatoes
When you pick your tomatoes, if you want to keep them longer, you have to find a way of reducing the temperature. As availability of electricity at village level can be a problem, ways have to be found to lower the temperature of this fragile crop. Some farmers at Dambatta in Kano State, Nigeria have used local mud bricks to make a very effective cooling chamber.
Making balanced feed for dairy cows
Based on how much milk each cow gives you can calculate the amount of balanced feed needed for your cows. You should also feed your cow green grass each day. This helps to increase the total quantity of milk as well as the amount of fat in the milk. It is also good for their digestion.
