Agra ProVision facilitated the Farmers Support Project (FSP) Khomas Pre and Post – Settlement training at the end of January.

The training was hosted over five days to equip farmers with the much-needed skills and knowledge for them to prosper on their farming enterprises. The training, that covers different topics to expose farmers to basic farming principles, is desribed as "structured in a way that it opens the farmer's mind to opportunities and realise the potential of their farming units," said Michael Degé, Agra ProVision’s Technical Advisor for Capacity Building and Entrepreneurial development. Michael added: "Gone are the days when farming was only considered as a hobby, it is now regarded as business. Farming is serious business, both because it feeds a nation, but also because it helps develop Namibia.” After the training, ongoing mentorship will be provided to ensure that farmers are implementing their action plans to achieve their targets.

The training continues to other regions in the country until end March 2015. The FSP aims to contribute towards improving the livelihood and success of emerging farmers in Namibia by assisting them to increase their farm income through improved farm practices. The Farmer’s Support Project is a project of the Government of the Republic of Namibia, implemented through the Ministry of Lands and Resettlement (MLR) with financial and technical support provided by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and co-funded by the Agricultural Bank of Namibia. The FSP awarded Agra ProVision the contract to organise and develop content and conduct Pre and Post-Settlement training for resettlement farm beneficiaries who were resettled from 2011 – 2014.
