Former Projects

Brazil

Action Five supported a family-oriented school of agriculture in Poção de Pedras in the North-East of Brazil. As its main goal the school aimed to adapt traditional agricultural knowledge to new conditions and challenges. For example, the burning of fields after the harvest frequently led to a dramatic decrease of crop yield each year.  The school targeted knowledge-transfer to students and families and through the financial support by Action Five the school was also able to employ an agricultural technician.
