EUCORD stimulates cooperatives in Mali with their production of crops that have a guaranteed market demand by grain storage and the improvement of sales.
The project is focussed on the following goals: improving the income of smallholder farmers and their families and diminishing and preventing malnutrition of the local population in the region Sikasso, by means of kitchen gardens and nutrition centers.
Furthermore, the project is focused on the improvement of access to agriculturale inputs (improved seeds, fertilizer and crop protection) and grain markets.
Finally, farmers are encouraged to start a kitchen garden for their own consumption, and to prevent malnutrition by children. EUCORD sets up nutrition centers in order to train volunteers in the community for improved nutrition practices.
