We are supporting several projects across the world.

Here you can read more about what we are supporting in each of these countries.

An agricultural school for life

Through WutomiAgri we want to give young people in Mozambique the tools to take responsibility for their own life. In spite of huge possibilities to make a good life working with agriculture, half of the population lives under the poverty line. Because of this problem it is obvious to work in this area.

 

WutomiAgri is an agricultural school for 10 students, both men and women. The name “Life Through Agriculture” is a combination of the tribal languages and the official language in the Gaza-province in the south of Mozambique where the school is placed.

 

Young people in the school people are

 

educated to become skilled farmers who can establish businesses in farming, and and pioneer initiatives for development in their local communities. Pioneers who can make fundamental choices for life and their faith.

 

The students learn simple, manageable and optimized methods of agriculture. This teaching is mainly done through practical work where they also are trained in planning, selling and market conditions. When the young people not only read and listen but experience how things work by themselves, they understand better. Together with enormous will power and will to develop this can make miracles.

 

In order to make the students pioneers in the local societies, they are accompanied on home visits during school time and later they are given counseling and education at home in the villages.

 

The start

Assist sent in 2009 Lisbet and Kurt Terp as the Danish conductor pair. Together with the Mozambique leader group, and skilled people from the local society, they now have a working school of agriculture in Chicumbane, Xai-Xai in Mozambique. The 3. Student team in working in 2013.

WutumiAgri was from the very start to be a total Mozambique project, which we believe gives the best conditions for the work.

 

Students

The students come from 5 different villages, so their knowledge – in spite of being only a few in numbers – can be spread in bigger areas.

The students live at the school where they are trained in hygiene, health and nutrition. They are also trained and supported in becoming independent thinkers in order to be good participants in the development of living conditions in Mozambique.
