The agriculture programme aims to support the women to grow sufficient food to not only feed their families but also yield an excess that can be sold at local markets to generate income. The goals are to increase production sustainably and to improve marketing. Different strategies are pursued to achieve these goals. Training is a key strategy and includes agriculture production best practices such as planning; vegetable farming; food processing and preservation; pesticide, disease and weed control; compost and irrigation.
 
Additional training in business skills, marketing and financial management is given. The underlying approach that guides the programme is that of “agro-ecological farming”. Other strategies include building the capacity of a farmers’ association, improving marketing, facilitating the provision of agricultural infrastructure, and the like.
