Burkina Faso: CLIMA Grows Agricultural Families

CLIMA is a highly successful program in Burkina Faso that welcomes aspiring farmers for training in agricultural best practices. This two-year program enables farmers to implement climate-sensitive agriculture techniques and modalities, learn best practices for animal husbandry, and understand the finances involved in profitably operating their own farms. The CLIMA model engages the entire family: spouses are taught employable skills such as sewing, which can help with the self-sustainability of the family, while children receive day-care and academic instruction. At the end of the two years of training, families return to their villages to disseminate their knowledge and assist others in becoming better farmers.
