AGRICULTURE FAMILY PROJECT
A WAY OUT OF THE SLUMS WITH MANGOS
Our concept is very simple: every family on campus receives a microfarm in the classic Khmer style. Here the families can raise chickens and grow their own fruit and vegetables. The food produced in this way, which includes water spinach, mangoes and papaya, covers the family’s own needs and is processed in the campus kitchen if it meets the quality standards there.
The latter is important to the families’ development process because it teaches them how to produce quality food and earn an income off campus. And that’s the point. After all, we don’t want to educate a few families, but as many as possible, so that the time on campus should be limited.
