Tour of the Ando Village Farm
Here is a short video of our trip to the Ando village demonstration farm. The farm is part of the HOPE Center's community nutrition project, and will serve to train and acclimate the local community to soy beans, which are not traditionally grown in this region. Severe protein deficiency is the norm for children in this village as well as the others surrounding it. Our hope is that soy beans (a great source of balanced protein) will become a staple food for the region and will accompany the traditional foods of maize, cassava, and yams.
