NGO Pledges 20 Tricycles To Farmers
By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU CITY, June 3 (LINA) - About 360farmers, comprising Ivorian refugees and host community residents, have been listed to benefit from 20 tricycles pledged by the NGO, Welt Hunger Hilfe (WHH).

WHH Project Coordinator Benjamin Maxwell Davis said the donation is intended to facilitate transportation of agricultural produce from the farms to markets in the county.

Mr. Davis made the disclosure recently when he briefed participants of the Economic Transformation Pillar of the Agenda for Transformation (AFT) meeting held in the conference room of the local agriculture office in Zwedru.

He said the beneficiaries are farmers from the refugee and host communities in Boe, Beh and Seiwen towns.

Davis told the Liberia News Agency that the 260 men and 100 women, who are to benefit under the scheme, were trained at the farmers’ field school to grow vegetables that are now ready for harvest.

The AFT economic transformation pillar comprises line ministries and agencies of government, along with INGOS, NGOS and CBOS, presently engaged in community-based projects and income generation.

They meet monthly to give an update of their respective activities in the county and recommend the way forward.
