- Livelihoods and Agriculture -

Agriculture is the backbone of most developing countries and a key driver for growth and progress.

Agriculture is the backbone of most developing countries and a key driver for growth and progress. Tag delivers agriculture-based livelihood improvement projects and creates demonstration farms that provide valuable training and innovative technologies. We build local capacities of farmers through valuable Israeli agricultural expertise to introduce new crop varieties, enhance farming methods and improve water usage to increase yields and crop quality, as well as improve pollination through beekeeping – thereby improving household nutrition and health.

In Myanmar (Burma) we are working to improve livelihoods and food security for vulnerable communities through the introduction and modernisation of beekeeping sector, training hundreds of new and existing beekeepers, and through efforts to increase pollination. In Kenya, we are developing a demo farm and have established a poultry farm, an we are providing dozens of farming families with training and agriculture loans. In Sri Lanka, Tag established an agriculture training centre and model farm in the heart of an area battered by war and the Asian Tsunami and in Rwanda we help develop agriculture training at a youth village.

Tag does an excellent job in seeking to share Israeli innovation and knowledge with developing countries… ensuring developing countries have access to cutting edge expertise.”
