Agricultural Program

Background of the Program

Many local communities in Cameroon are endowed with fertile soils for both food and cash crop cultivation, but unfortunately, these communities are caught up in abject poverty because their main means of livelihood (agriculture) is not well utilized due to poor farming techniques, lack of farm tools, low purchasing power (caused by the lack of good farm to market roads), etc. Given that government efforts cannot impact every farmer directly, in 2015, UFC saw the need to incorporate agriculture into its programs. The main focus has been to expose the challenges faced by local farmers in Cameroon and help provide solutions to some of these challenges.
