Visiting farms where organic farming has been successful
We carry out comprehensive development projects. Among them, the popularization of organic farming is the key to success. Bangladesh, gaining independence in 1971, is the second youngest country in Asia. After a war of independence with Pakistan, it has been considered one of the world’s poorest countries facing floods, cyclones and other natural disasters almost every year. During harvest time, however, Bangladesh is known as “The Golden Country” because of the rice fields which cover so much of the land. The people’s optimistic nature to overcome adversity provides a strong foundation for the country.
HFW is running 20 projects in 23 villages of three regions to put an end to hunger and poverty. Local residents play important roles in creating and running many projects including scholarships for girls, school lunch projects, tree planting, ensuring safe water and projects to generate income for women. Among these, reviewing methods of agriculture, which is a main income source of the region, and spreading organic farming without adverse effects on the environment is the highest priority.
