Youth Must Be Encouraged Into Farming for the Future of Food Security

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

 

 

Our youth must be encouraged into farming as an occupation for the future of food security. Food Insecurity will continue to rise in Africa until governments understand and promote the importance of healthy, virus-free plants, along with proper farming techniques and to assist their farmers in purchasing these plants.

Government support of private companies specializing in disease free plants and farm education is, also, necessary to change the face of farming in these countries. Few governments, NGO’s or non-profit organizations can effectively tackle such projects for lack of management and long term grant funding, yet private industry can’t survive without the collaboration from the governments extending down to the farmers, as the farmers look to their governments for leadership.

Farmers continuing to grow or plant diseased plants keeps them in the vicious cycle of non-productivity. The old saying of ‘we’ve always done it this way’ must come to a stop. It’s a new day and with this day comes old problems requiring new tactics.

African farmers should be encouraged by their governments and provided assistance to obtain these plants, plant them so that with proper care, realize abundant harvests with which those farmers should not only be able to pay back their obligations, but provide a decent living for their families. Without this hope, the youth will continue to drift away from this avenue of employment.

FAIM is located in East Africa and currently producing clean healthy plants through propagation techniques such as clean seed sources, cuttings, divisions and tissue culture in our modern lab facilities. We ship plants to the countries of East Africa, West Africa, and Middle East. Our plants are healthy, virus-free plants for food security projects.

OPIC Loan Helps with Food Security in Rwanda

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Forestry and Agricultural Investment Management, USA, LLC, (FAIM) receives loan from Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the U.S.

government’s development finance institution to further their efforts to help with food security in Rwanda.

Based in Kigali since 2010, FAIM grows virus-free plants such as banana varieties, passion fruit, tamarillos and pineapple. With the recent OPIC funding, the company will expand their operation with new tissue culture laboratories to further production of their mainstay plants as well as starting production on new plant varieties like potatoes and strawberry plants.

FAIM, CEO, Steven Jones, notes, “This program to help the African farmer was developed about 6 years ago by my wife, Cheryl and I, after a trip on a USDA Trade Missions to Madagascar and South Africa. There wasn’t anything that our nursery in Tennessee could offer these people that would make their lives better. So, we developed a program that would help to solve many of the problems that the African farmer is experiencing with their crops beginning with clean healthy plants. It took years of tweaking, locating the right social investors, being awarded a grant from AECF (African Enterprise Challenge Fund) to help get our project off to a good start, but, here we are now 3 years in Rwanda and growing once again with OPIC financing.”

According to Jones, the FAIM program began in Rwanda one of the most densely populated countries in Africa yet lacking in food security. The banana and pineapple production, alone, in Rwanda has seriously declined in the past few decades leaving the country to import much of the produce. Providing the Rwandan farmers with healthy plants, extension services and FAIM’s own Farm School, they now have the opportunity to successfully grow quality produce to sell in local markets as well as through other distribution networks.

Starter plants are now available for the current planting season. From small farmers to large farmers to government projects, FAIM has the plants to help. Contact their office in Kigali +250 78 838 6266 to purchase plants for food security.

FAIM grows plants for food security farming for farmers in Rwanda and other sub-Saharan African countries, Middle East and Asia.
