Dear valuable Reader,
after many outpost trainings with farmers in the villages in the past 2 years, HELOG has now for the first time after the pandemic held a workshop where farmers, trainers and representatives of the aid organizations and local politicians were invited. The event took place in the recently renovated training buildings of MedLife – HELOG Academy in Tomato Camp north of Gbarnga. Express praise was expressed by the participants for the renovated training facilities and HELOG in particular was asked to further expand them.
The goal of this level II course is to:
- Provide advanced training in power tiller operation,
- Prepared farmers to contact routine power to the maintenance and repairs. This practically field and workshop based training is linked to MedLife Liberia and HELOG Academy program to help farmers transition from subsistence to commercial farming aimed at promoting food security in West Africa.
This training consisted of five modules
Module 1: Managing commercial agriculture is a business enterprise
module 2: Parts of the power and their uses.
Module 3: How to operate the power tiller
module 4: Problem shooting guide for field repairs
Module 5: How to maintain, repair and service the power tiller
Learning approach: ‚Learning by doing‘
Follow up continuous learning. Integrating training and production means that farmers will continue learning to add value, maintain quality standards and enabled commercial rice production in West Africa.
We at HELOG believe that using machines to farm is critical to Pioneer in business and human development through self-reliance to achieve food security in a sustainable way.
