Train 20 families on potato farming


Did you know that potatoes can thrive where other crops fail?

In Ethiopia, Concern’s introduction of the potato through comprehensive training of lead farmers in drought-prone northern highland regions is credited with a major drop in food shortages. Potatoes are easy to grow, easy to cook and nutritious! A gift of €700 could provide potato farming training to 20 families, encouraging crop diversification and providing a resilient and nutritious food source.

This gift goes towards our livelihoods programmes.

Mehamed’s family only had barley to grow on their farm, which limited their income as well as their diets. Now, thanks to Concern, they grow potatoes, as well as apples, and earn enough for Mehamed and his siblings to go to school.
