Agri-equipment distribution in close coordination with municipalities

08 Mar, 2024

This International Women’s Day highlights the need for investment in women in order to accelerate progress. Recognizing that women bear the majority of agricultural responsibilities in Nepal, recently, in close coordination with local municipal-level authorities (Palikas), the GRAPE programme facilitated the distribution of 64 mini tillers, 34 of them equipped with potato ridge makers, to women farmers' groups and cooperatives across Karnali and Sudurpaschim provinces. These agri- equipment specifically focuses to ease tasks for women, minimizing labor-intensive practices, reducing drudgery, enhancing efficiency and boosting overall productivity in the agricultural sector.
