(Smallholders Foundation) – Our organization, The Smallholders Foundation is a non-governmental organization that promotes sustainable agricultural productivity and environmental conservation beneficial to rural poor small farmers, through educational radio programs and on field practical demonstrations. We are based in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.
We seek to encourage young people’s participation in agriculture. Our School Gardens imparts sustainable agricultural, environmental conservation, entrepreneurship and financial planning skills on young people through the establishment of modern school gardens in secondary schools.
Through this project we work with young people to:
- Establish similar gardens at home, earn income and become self employed.
We wish to call for Mini-Grant applications from Young Farmer Clubs in Nigeria secondary schools to support existing school garden projects, which directly benefits students.
Find below the Mini-Grant Application Form, as well as Application Guidelines. The form can also be downloaded through our website:
The deadline for the submission of all application forms is 31st March, 2011
