Sustainable and Resilient Agribusiness Development in Mercedes Philippines
Project Costs: $823,740
Project Length: 3 years
Almost three-quarters of families in district of Mercedes (Philippines) live below the poverty line. Their poverty is compounded by inadequate access to rice, protein sources and fruit and vegetables. On top of this, the Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. Each disaster slows progress and leaves vulnerable family to suffer the most.
ADRA’s Sustainable and Resilient Agribusiness Development in Mercedes (SARAM) project is helping families’ secure sustainable incomes and improved nutrition. Through the project 1715 people will be trained in improved rice farming, fishing and gardening techniques, giving them the opportunities to provide more for their families and the hope of a better future.
