Family Farming Program

 

The Lagos Food Bank Initiative Family Farming Program was designed to create a food and agricultural system that is managed and operated by a family, and relies on family labor to increase the quality of life in dignity, equity and reducing the level of hunger and poverty.

The Goal of the program is to protect and expand the economic capacity of women through family farming as well as to develop on the essential contribution of women to agriculture.

The Objectives of the Family Farming Program Include:

  1. To reduce the prevalence of poverty amidst women.
  2. To empower women to be self-reliant and promote gender equality.
  3. To build on the locally available resources and capacities to improve women in agriculture
  4. Encourage women farmers to interconnect traditional, local knowledge with innovative ideas to yield better harvest.

VISION

The vision of the UN Decade of Family Farming is “A world where diverse, healthy and sustainable food and agricultural systems flourish, where resilient rural and urban communities enjoy a high quality of life in dignity, equity, free from hunger and poverty.”

In alignment with the UN Decade of Family Farming, the LFBI Family Farming Program’s Vision is to create a food and agricultural system that is managed and operated by a family, and relies on family labour to increase the quality of life in dignity, equity and reducing the level of hunger and poverty.
