They realized that their base resources came from agriculturalrelated enterprises managed by small and medium sized farmers but although they had largetracts of cultivatable land, their production, productivity and income was very low due to the factthat the region experienced long periods of drought, and had little access to the water from twolarge rivers that ran through the communities.Once the $5M US grant from your funding agency is approved, it will be used to educate thesmall and medium sized farmers about proper agriculture production since the land is readilyavailable and cultivatable.

This could be due to the fact that the regionexperienced long periods of drought and although two large rivers run through the communities,access to the water from these rivers were limited for use by the farmers for their crops andanimals.This low income could attribute to the circumstances of a large percentage of the population wassuffering from high levels of malnutrition and that they were plagued with an overabundance ofhealth issues, since they would not have the funds to access proper healthcare or nutritious foods.A report was prepared by the Social Work Team to the funding agency All Terrain Enterprises,seeking to obtain a grant of US$5M in order to build sustainable rural economies whileaddressing the issues of low income, malnutrition and inadequate healthcare. Once thesecommunities can increase their income by means of agriculture enterprises, they will be able toincrease the family income and wealth, afford proper homes, have access to quality educationand stimulate economic development.
