To explore new ways of community development and self-sustainability. As the old saying goes: “"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day...Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."
The organization's objectives are first to empower our communities by providing experiential agricultural learning opportunities. Second to give opportunities on self-sustainability and providing for one’s family and community. These kinds of hands-on opportunities for people to learn by doing; involving people in collective effort so that they gain confidence in their own abilities and their ability to influence decisions that affect them.
To encourage people in our community to join together with others to determine through collective effort and conversation what are the needs of the community, while at the same time developing individuals' own potential as contributing members of society.
