South Sudan - Ploughs
Farmers in Aweil East still plough by hand - an exhausting and time consuming task. Other areas that have adopted ploughing with oxen have drastically cut their ploughing time, expanded their farm size and increased their yields. Our local partner, Christian Mercy International, is working with farmers, providing them with oxen, ploughs and training. In return, the farmers will invest part of the money from their increased harvests into community development projects.
