Empower Mali is pleased to announce a generous $50,000 tractor donation by the Watkins Family
The two new tractors will be a great addition to ensuring the food security situation in the community where it is donated. The two communities chosen are Sevare in the center of Mali and Fanterila in the south of Mali. Plans for the purchase and donation will be August 2017.
Empower Mali already has three tractors in the villages of San, Garalo and most recently in the village of Beneko. After two years, San and Garalo have implemented large scale farming. They have been able to increase their farmland thereby also increasing yields.
The Empower Mali tractors food security initiative will allow farmers to modernize their business and help increase production of staples like cotton, sorghum, millet, maize, and rice. A massive increase in productivity and output will make a decisive improvement in production, employment and increase rural incomes.
Thank you Watkins family for your continued investment in Mali!!
