The Majok Adim Women's Committee in Ayat East payam, Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, South Sudan, is hard at work implementing ideas for new projects. With support from Pan Aweil Development and financial assistance from Hanti Sidra One Global Family, the women began growing vegetables during the dry season, using drip irrigation. They then sold the produce at a shop they set up in the market at the nearby town of Marial Bai.
Now Pan Aweil Development is helping them start another project. Six oxen, along with ploughs, have been purchased and are being trained to plough the land. A "custom ploughing" business will be set up to prepare the farming plots of some 750 householders in the six villages of Majok Adim boma.
