Education & Capacity Building

Education is the key element in achieving Darsfoundation’s objectives. Presently, Darsfoundation holds a series of workshops and training sections to inform community members & association of farmers of the environmental downturn to the local and global consequences. Additionally, information is provided on sustainable agriculture, alternative livelihood and environmental protection.

To meet this challenge, Darsfoundation embarks on education and training programs, community mobilization, neighborhood stewardship programs and strategic livelihood development projects.

Vision and mission of Darsfield EarthCare & Farm-Tech Foundation (Darsfoundation). The Darsfoundation was born from the recognition of the urgency and the individual and collective responsibility needed to preserve the environment, wildlife and salvage most of the rural farming communities in Ghana. Most of these communities are caught up in a hopeless cycle of poverty.
Darsfoundation mission is to provide the knowledge, infrastructure and the support that would lift individual farmers in these poor communities from the bottom of the socio- economic ladder to the middle.
