The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has granted 1,500 agricultural kits, worth 1.5 million U.S. dollars, to Angolan producers for the 2021-2022 agricultural year.
The assistance will benefit 50,000 Angolan producers, including family farmers, women’s agricultural cooperatives, and young entrepreneurs, Gherda Barreto, the FAO representative in Angola, said in a statement released Thursday.
He said the kits also include bars of soap to help prevent COVID-19.
The delivery of the kits will be made in accordance with the identified needs, being grouped according to categories such as “combating drought, women entrepreneurs, agribusiness youth, resilient field schools and strengthening nutrition,” Barreto said. Enditem
