At iarda our mission is to eliminate hunger, malnutrition and poverty through sustainable farming. we do this by working hand in hand with rural families to develop the skills they need to be financially and nutritionally self-sufficient on their own land, with the resources they have.
Sustainable farming means two things: The program is designed based on the resources available in that specific area, using the tools that are available and familiar to the smallholder farm families. We focus on lasting self reliance, as families obtain sufficient knowledge and education, manage resources wisely, and prepare for the future so that they will continue to thrive after our support ends.
Iarda's focus is on helping families understand how to sustainably farm different types of crops at the right times of the year in order to nourish their land and prevent the loss of precious nutrients in the soil. We want these families to see agriculture as a long-term sustainable solution, rather than a “quick fix.”
