    ECHO West Africa 2016 Report Page 4 Image 2

    These people were trained on several themes such as Farming God's Way, bio-digester construction, compost making, gardening, and livestock.

    The ECHO West Africa Impact Center seeks to extend the services of ECHO to help those working with the poor in West Africa to be more effective, especially in the area of agriculture. Functioning primarily as a technical support organization the Impact Center is helping community development organizations and workers operate more effectively.


    ECHO's training focuses not only on agriculture, but on improving the living conditions of small-scale farmers, and we are interested in agriculture, health, food, environment, Income, etc. Our trainings are very practical and at the end of each session each participant is able to practice what he has learned and to train others.


    Following the training campaign comes the period of follow-ups and evaluations. Our training teams traveled to almost all the localities where they gave training to follow up on the implementation of the techniques taught. So, for example, Bobo, Kouka, Solenzo, Bomboila, Koran, Dedougou, Djibo, Kayibo, Laye, Leo, Ourbono, Siby, Dakoro, Sanekui, Toma, and Tougan were followed and accompanied in the application of the various techniques taught By ECHO.

    ECHOcommunity成員聚光:Tuntun與Thaung Si先生 2020-04-08

    Patrick Trail報告摘錄 – ECHO亞洲



    Thaung Si and TunTun

    Thaung Si(左)和Tuntun(右)在炫耀刀豆種子,它們源自ECHO亞洲種子庫,現在栽培以供應緬甸種子庫。

    這里發生的這么多事情都源自于我們在這個地區的主要合作伙伴,Thaung Si先生。作為ECHO亞洲長期的朋友及合作伙伴,Thaung Si在多個場合與我們一起參與培訓活動,我們也向他學到了很多東西。三年前,他在傈僳族浸信會神學院創建了一個社區種子庫。通過種子庫,他教授學生農業和園藝實踐,播種許多不同類型的種子,從而對許多人的生活產生了重大影響。正是在這里,Tuntun先生和近一百位當地其他農民及參與人員在去年接受了生物炭及其它技術培訓,而Thaung Si則定期予以跟進。

    ECHO社區在整個地區及世界各地都有許多像Thaunag Si 這樣盡職盡責的合作伙伴。這些合作伙伴接受充分培訓后,便能對更多人進行培訓!

    關于 West Africa

    "West Africa is a highly diverse region in terms of agro-climatic conditions and agricultural production potential, as well as with respect to the distribution of vulnerable populations. In general, the northern regions of coastal countries and the landlocked Sahelian countries are relatively food insecure and impoverished. Additionally, rapid urbanization in the region is leading to increasing numbers of urban poor. The population in this region is expected to grow 100 percent between 2010 and 2050, compared to the global growth rate of 38 percent. Population growth combined with low increases in productivity could further tighten resources and increase food insecurity.

    Chronic undernutrition and food availability are core challenges to food security in West Africa. Critical gender concerns related to food security include the inability of women to hold on to land and to make decisions regarding household expenditure and consumption, as well as women having less capital than men.

    There is ample evidence that the agriculture sector—which accounts for 35 percent of West African gross domestic product and 15.3 percent of regional export earnings—and in particular food staples, is the best engine for generating sustained, rapid and pro-poor economic growth." - Feed The Future
