Agricultural Program in Liberia, West Africa

Agricultural Program in Liberia, West Africa

Written by CinA Missionary Christian Kallon:

With the upgrade of our NGO status, the ministry took up an Agricultural Program with the Town of Tosor, a two-mile distance away from Robertsport early in January 2017 with identification of farm land, clearing of bushes and plowings.  There are presently 60 persons, mostly women in the community that have been placed into three groups of twenty in each.  The church being the fourth group uses its piece of land for demonstration purposes whereby community members are taught about good farming techniques. 

With the swampy terrain of the County, Corn (the three-month variety) would be planted for this season until April before starting the upland farming. Mostly vegetables are the program’s focus for now until April when the community will go into Cassava (liken to yucca) farming. The ministry’s strategy here is befriending and creating the occasion to reach out with the Gospel.  By this farming also, Christians in Action Mission will positively impact lives by being part of the Government’s outreach for FOOD SECURITY.
