No Time for Retirement

Preparing for the Rain

Balong-Cambang Village, Indonesia


GHNI-Indonesia has opened a project in Balong-Cambang Village. From August until October of 2016, the villagers were busy preparing their land for the coming rainy season. Now that the rain has come, they are even busier, working to plant the rice seed as soon as possible on all of the prepared land. The awareness of the community about the importance of farming has recently increased greatly. They realize that by using the unused and abandoned land, and planting their own rice, they will have food security and sustainability.

The Next Generation of Farmers

Sendana Village, Indonesia


This month, the GHNI Sendana team facilitated a training at the Mars Cocoa Academy for ten cocoa farmers, including seven young Sendana farmers, all between the ages of 20 to 30 years old. After a 12- hour drive to reach the training venue, the farmers had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to refine their cocoa farming skills and deepen their understanding about pest and disease control, good agricultural practices, and soil maintenance.
