Background And Problems Analysis On Food Crop Production And Small Ruminants – Business Plans/Feasibility Report/Project

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION

Makari Gbanti chiefdom, the identified project location is one of the largest chiefdom in the Bombali District, had experience some of the most gruesome, barbaric, debilitating, militating, mutilating and arson acts in the 11 years old civil conflict.
 
Secondly, The chiefdom is located in an area with two large rivers i.e. Tabai and Mabole with a vegetation structure ranging from wood land savanna, flood plains, grass lands and inland valley swamps a vegetation and soil structure really suitable
for crop and animal production.
 
Its plentiful water supply throughout the year enables it to accommodate large human populations crowded in to small farming hamlets scattered all over the chiefdom.
 
Likewise, the large fish reserve in the rivers was also utilized to supplement food needs of the community and the surrounding communities.
 
The turning point of this economic growth within these came on the frequent rebels attacks in these areas.
 
Men and Women had their limbs amputated. Produce and animals were looted and facilities for agriculture vandalized.
 
Also, the humanitarian crisis came to a head when the rebel occupied these areas up to four years. Seeds banks and livestock reserve were destroyed. Alisa Women’s Farming Project alone an umbrella organization of Five (5) villages lost a total of Two thousand Five hundred (2,500) bushels of rice besides other field crops like cassava, maize and groundnuts.
 
As such Alisa Women’s Farming Project some of whose membership had their limbs amputated had identified about 25 amputees wishing to resettle in their home district.
 
Finally, the association is passionately appealing to your institution to support it to achieve in its outlined objectives in collaboration with RIAP Lunsar in post war Sierra Leone.

PROJECT LOCATION

Alisa Women’s Farming Project which had facilities at Balia, in the Makarie Gbanti chiefdom decided to locate the main project activities for community people and amputees.

Alisa Women’s Farming Project operates in this village. This village has three
groups/ Associations. The project will operates a communal farm at the project
headquarters at the same time distribute available inputs to the project
beneficiaries. These inputs will be recovered and recycle to other
beneficiaries until all project members are being serviced.
 

 FULFILLMENT OF THE PRIORITY NEEDS OF BENEFICIARIES:

 The major problem faced by the project and
which the project will try to address is the lack of the most appropriate
agricultural input to restart normal production activities. These inputs
include farm equipment, seeds, planting materials, and livestock. Other
priority areas to be addressed are:

Lack of the capacity to provide agricultural support services

The neglect of the women in development activities.

BENEFICIARIES PARTICIPATION AND CONTRIBUTION:

The
project beneficiaries had participated in the identification and planning of
the project. Since it deals with their economics well-being. During the
implementation of the project, beneficiaries would contribute the:

Unskilled labor

Local materials (sticks, stones, sand etc.)

Land for the cultivation and construction of animal sheds.

 

 

IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY

The
under mentioned strategies will be carried out to achieve the set objectives:

  • Community mobilization and sensitization for the further understanding
    of the project.

  • Training of Alisa Women’s Farming Project executive and animators on
    the planning, implementation, monitoring and management of especially
    agricultural project.

  • Registration of targeted beneficiaries (Women in farming families
    within the operational communities).

  • Purchase and distribution of viable seeds. RIAP Lunsar and the trained
    executive of AWFP will ensure that certified seeds approved by the seed board
    are bought.

  • Provision of food for work to assist the farm families in the hunger
    period and protect the seeds from been eaten. RIAP Lunsar has a memorandum of
    understanding with Alisa Women’s Farming Project to supply food to every
    certified farmer who is involved in farming.

  • Supervision, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of project
    activities.

 

PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY:

It is expected that with the provision of finds, the project will be able to
achieve its objectives. The maintenance of the project will enhance by two (2)
types of account that will be established. In addition to these, the resurrect
expenditure would be met from the revolving fund, after termination of donor
fund this will enhance the project continuation after donor funding is terminated.

IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT:

The depletion of the forest and tree crop, due to demands for fuel wood and timber
activities has increased run off and soil erosion especially on derived
watersheds leading to loss of soil nutrients, situation of waterways and
damaged to fisheries.
The Project when fully implement will try to embark on activities that will
conserve the environment.

ROLE OF WOMEN

Women produce 60% of the food crop requirements and handle the processing of food
crops such as rice, cassava and groundnut. In addition, women are responsible
for food preparation, childcare, and house management, which influence their
time and energy for agricultural activities.
Institutional involvement of women in the project area development is very minimal. There is
the need to integrate them into mainstream development, which requires an
expansion of the scope for knowledge and skills. There are many areas where
women development programmed with varying objectives can be implemented such as
this project.

PROJECT DUPLICABILITY:

This project when fully implemented will serve as a model/ pilot project, which will be replicated in other areas of the Chiefdom.

MONITORING AND EVALUATION:

The project members and community are responsible for monitoring project
implementation and made necessary recommendations at general and executive
meetings for effectives decision-making. Observations, field visit and group
discussions will form part of the participatory monitoring methodology.
In addition to the above, specialized monitoring teams will be requested from the necessary recommendations for better project implementation and replication.
