Mission Moment: A commitment to change in Afghanistan.
Atiq Ullah used to plant his crops without considering how much seed to use or when they should be cultivated. This was not the result of carelessness, but a lack of knowledge about proper agriculture techniques. In December 2012, Atiq Ullah and 1,200 farmers in Afghanistan received training through a PWS&D-supported project. “After attending this training, I realized that we have been wasting much of our resources,” said Atiq. He has since reported a 90 percent increase in his crop yield. “As I have observed the change in my crops, I want to teach the same skills to other farmers in my village.”
