Earlier this year, we announced that Farmcrowdy was going to be doing some very important work in Akwa-Ibom, and we are elated because that vision has come to pass.
We have decided to focus on the female farmers because we believe that when you empower a woman, you empower a family and thus, the nation. For this project, we have engaged over 50 females farmers in the Ini Local Government Area to cultivate cassava on 100 hectares of land and we hope to expand our operations as time goes on.
To execute the cassava farming project in Akwa Ibom state, Farmcrowdy is working with Meadow Foods, an organization aimed at providing food security in Akwa-Ibom state.
The female farmers were so excited about this project that they composed a song for Farmcrowdy in their local dialect. In case you are wondering, this song is a prayer for Farmcrowdy, that the partnership will be successful and this will be the first of many projects.
