When it started

2010

Goal

Upload the community of Okouvworie Village in the area outside of Sapele, Delta State, Nigeria.

Description of the Project

Mission: Africa and Partners in Action have joined together to fight malnutrition through organic farming in Nigeria.  Farming is desperately lacking in Nigeria and the growth of farming will enable employment opportunities and aid the undernourished population.  A pilot is now underway to determine the best types of crops for Nigeria and to train participants in farming techniques.  The pilot includes mid-size farms (1-3 acres), small family farms, and a farm at a local school.  For the school we will implement a new source for potable water and add agriculture to the curriculum.  The pilot will serve to identify local individuals on the ground to lead the next phase of this and future projects.

Measuring Project Success

In October 2018 the team will travel to Nigeria to assess the outcomes of on the ground activities from May thru September.  We will engage with Church and civic leaders to identify a broad roll out of organic farming in the community.  At that time we will expand the local on the ground team in Sapele to begin future projects.

Future Projects

  • Expand agriculture and develop a commercial outlet for crops to create economic stability for local farmers.
  • Develop a Garment Factory that will generated income for local families and profit for ongoing investment.
  • Establish a local Community Center for training, Bible Studies, computer access, and community outreach.
