Our purpose-built Training Hall is the central venue for all our Courses.
So, here, we offer both theoretical (indoor)and practical (outdoor) training. We’ve presented many Courses, but major in livestock training and agricultural best practice.
Other Courses already presented include:
Manure production - (essential as we aim to lead others “fertilizer free”)
Nutrition - Dairy goat management -
Animal husbandry -Agro-forestry
Group dynamics & leadership
Convinced that communicating good information well is a major key towards escaping the poverty trap, our Training Hall featured in the 1st phase of development of our site.
Conceived as a multi-use building, it has two rooms - the main Hall will seat over 100, and a smaller Hall can accommodate about 30 in a more intimate atmosphere.

Our thanks to IATP (International Agricultural Training Programme) for their help building the Hall, and the projector enabling us to present quality visual programmes regularly.
Also to Rotary, North Walsham and
seating in both halls.
Projected agricultural training course
Practical outdoor training
We’re now promoting a brilliant conservation farming programme “Farming God’s Way” - an innovative approach to farming in the tropics.
During 2012 the FGW specialist training team from both South Africa and Malawi spent time with us on site, training our local subsistence farmers.

........ and the results!

Despite the searing heat, torrential rains and major flooding that hit our area in 2012/2013, maize on much of the FGW prepared land thrived, while land next door, planted in traditional ridged format, failed miserably.
We’re delighted that the Farming God’s Way trainers have committed to partner with us in local agricultural training for the next 5 years.
