Impact Story

Youth unemployment remains a pervasive challenge in the Nkwanta North District and the nearby catchments. Agriculture, dominated by crop and animal production, is experiencing a serious decline in productivity, a situation which leads to the diminishing contribution to the Region. This situation is attributed to a number of factors which include but not limited to access to agriculture inputs.  Fair River International Association Development is a farmer focused organization that support production of commodities in rural areas through the provision of technical trainings, agricultural advisory services, and farmer-base association support

Entrepreneurial/Business skills training is an integral part of most training programs implemented by FARIAD. Entrepreneurship is part of the life/soft skills provided with the aim of ensuring a smooth transition of beneficiaries from training into world of work. The soft skills trainings are provided simultaneously with the technical skills training.  Fair River International Association for Development (FARIAD) is a farmer focused organization that support production of commodities in rural areas through the provision of technical trainings, agricultural advisory services, and farmer-base association support.
