The Sisters will establish an eco-demonstration farm, which will serve as an employment avenue for youth, training for farmers on the best farming practices and a micro-credit project to help alleviate poverty in the area. This will also provide for neighboring villages and communities an avenue to generate local income, as well as creation of further job opportunities for the youth and women of Kulmasa.
