JANA Model Farm
JANAs new agricultural project improves food security, promotes sustainable agriculture and increases awareness about the use of resources.
We are getting a farm!
JANA Model Farm brings organic agriculture and environmental education to our community. We want to inspire children, young people and the community for sustainable agricultural development, train them in its application and thus improve health, raise environmental awareness and also provide better opportunities in professional life.
We work to build sustainable relationships between people and their immediate environment. Everyone has the right to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature. In order to sow this seed, we would like to exemplify this knowledge and pass it on to the students of JANA. We want to support the population in revitalizing the villages and designing them according to their wishes and ideas. We want to inspire the community to dream and give them the self-confidence to take their future into their own hands.
You contribution will grow!
You want to live in harmony with nature and with each other. If agriculture goes wrong, nothing else will have a chance to go right.
Toxic conventional agriculture, including pesticides and general pollutions cause serious diseases or lead to infertality.
Structural discrimination and unaffordable land prices. Inaccessible knowledge about ecological cultivation. Unequal access to food and an unbalanced diet.
Strong dependence on agricultural income, due to little rural non-farm enterprises.
Poor child rights & high drop out rate
Fourth highest rate of child marriage. The highest child labor rate with 3.45 million active child workers.
Sustainable Agriculture, Livestock and Pisciculture
On JANA’s own farm, organic fruit and vegetables are grown and fish and cattle are raised. This ensures that students and families are supplied with healthy food. In a farmer’s cooperative, smallholders can organize themselves, exchange experiences and purchase seeds and other products at fair prices.
Waste and Resource Management
A waste and compost management system will be set up on the site for the community. Organic fertilizers are collected through the participation of the community in a local organic waste disposal system. The overall aim is to raise awareness of pollution, waste disposal and circular economic practices.
Education and Training
The farm as a training location. The community, students and farmers learn how to grow organically and strengthen their environmental awareness in workshops and courses. In addition, training courses are offered to improve non-agricultural skills and thus their job market opportunities. A center will be created that offers space for education, culture and leisure.

We want to support the population in revitalizing the villages and designing them according to their wishes and ideas. We want to inspire the community to dream and give them the self-confidence to take their future into their own hands.
