This 1-week course is designed for development workers, missionaries, and volunteers looking to engage their communities with low-cost, high-impact agricultural ideas and techniques. Participants will be introduced to various agricultural practices and technologies through classroom time and hands-on activities on the farm, learning to ‘use what you have to make what you need.’

This course is considered an ‘introductory survey course’ and will present a broad overview of many options suited to smallholder agricultural contexts in Asia. 

20 FEB - 22 FEB 2024

You are cordially invited to join for our First ECHO East Africa and Tearfund Joint Symposium on “Best Practices in Sustainable Agriculture and Appropriate Technology” from the 20th through 22nd February, 2024 in Juba, South Sudan. We hope that you will gather with us in this important event as we will be sharing best practices promoted by different actors across the region. It will be an opportunity for networking for those working in East Africa to alleviate poverty, fight against hunger, improve food security and overall livelihood of the people we serve in East Africa.
