GABILEY FARMING PROJECT

The most important source of livelihoods in Gabiley District is agriculture production and livestock rearing. The district is also the most important agricultural area in western Somaliland. The Food and Agriculture Organization’s State of Somaliland Crop Production Assessment report shows that Gabiley District alone produces 66 percent of the total cereals grown in Borama, Baki, Hargeisa, and Gabiley Districts.

 

 Aim of the project:

The project aims at applying the principles of protecting humanity and lifting the hardship whereby the project will increase crop yields by supporting farmers with tractors, greenhouses, fertilisers and training farmers with modern farming techniques.  African Relief Fund will implement the project with Tima-Ade University where the agricultural college students will gain practical skills through this project.  

 

Specific objectives:   

  • Raise the production of agricultural crops in Gabiley and the whole country.
  • Improve the income of the poor farmer’s households.
  • Create job opportunities for the unemployed People and utilize their potentials.
  • Introducing new farming techniques in the region.
  • Well trained agricultural students will graduate from the university.

 

Importance of the project:

Farming is a good way for villagers to feed themselves and to get out of poverty.  The biggest problem is that this requires hard manual labour.  At the break of dawn men will go to the fields and spend all day preparing the fields and the luckiest ones use ox for filed ploughing.  This takes many days to complete.  This work is done but the hard-labour limits the size of the field and the crop.

Gabiley Farming project will provide farmers techniques and knowledge they need to multiply the crop yield many times by using tractors, environmentally friendly fertilisers, greenhouses, training and providing high quality seeds.

“So pray to your Lord and sacrifice [to Him alone].”
