Ghunsa: Organic Farming

The concept of the trainingfarm  is being expanded:

After assessment talks and meetings in 2017, similar structures are now being set up in the village of Ghunsa. After the women of the two villages had already been able to network at the meeting in spring 2018, Roots for Life in cooperation with Chay-ya Austria designed a project which is now also supported by the provincial government of Vorarlberg.

During Carola Gosch's visit in December 2018, the content could be discussed with the women and the suitable property could be fixed. In January 2019 the land was bought and the project can start. It is planned to set up a model farm similar to the one in Chyangsar and above all to use synergies in training and food processing.

The women of Ghunsa were accepted as an independent unit into the cooperative "Sagarmatha Milijuli Sana Kishan Women Cooperative LTD" and appropriate structures were created. This way, each village can run its own initiatives and still use the synergy in the entire cooperative.

Our role

Roots for Life is a supporting member of the projects of the Ghunsa and Chyangsar women’s community and is therefore also involved in decision-making. Roots for Life supports the projects of the cooperative, takes care of the financing and brings suitable partners on board.

For us, empowerment means supporting and strengthening local groups. Because before projects can be implemented sustainably in a village, strong supporting organisations are needed. In Ghunsa and Chyangsar, we try to form such organisations and establish strong structures.
