The project coordinator on the site, Mr. Pierre Maniragarura, reports about the training:
”The topics were very interesting because the participants learned how important it is to adapt their production systems to the local climate and to identify the types of plants and seeds that are suitable for the specific area”.
Understanding the benefits of such trainings, AKI and the Project-Team on site will arrange more trainings to disseminate the knowledge about sustainable agriculture.
