Serve Africa is investing into cassava (yuca) farming as a short-term strategy to locally sustain her projects in Liberia. The first part of this project involves investing into 100 acres of land. Cassava is a locally grown plant. It's roots (tuber) is widely eaten across Africa and internationally. Cassava can be processed into Gari/Farina, Acheke, Fufu, or it can be boiled and eaten with gravy as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The processed cassava is marketable internationally and, therefore, has a great potential of income generation over a short period of time.
The cassava plant has a reliable farming culture. It is never impacted by change in whether condition, be it plenty rainfall or lot of sunshine. It's tuber is ready for harvest within six months of planting. We are raising $25,000 to begin planting cassava on the first 25 acres of land recently purchased near Ganta, Liberia. We need need farming equipment and tools including tractors, power saw, cassava processing machines, etc.
Serve Africa is asking for partnership with individuals, churches, and organizations that are passionate about using agriculture to create financial opportunities and food security for orphans, widows, village pastors, and poor families.
