first_imgA group of disabled farmers known as the Life is Good Disabled Organization (LGDO) in Ganta, Nimba County has planted a local variety of cassava on an acre of land.The physically challenged said their aim is to earn income and support their families from proceed from the cassava that they would harvest from the farm.Despite the Ebola crisis, which has also affected Liberia’s agriculture sector, the disabled farmers generated L$2,500 from the sale of beans intercropped on one acre of cassava planted from their last harvest.They used the harvested cassava to feed members of the group who turned out twice a week to do some works on the farm.The purpose of the disabled farmers’ project is to generate money to transform it in to meaningful business ventures, such as soap making.The money from the bean harvest was used to buy materials to manufacture soap, another positive result from the group’s increased production, according to Abigail Gonkarnue, chairlady of the organization.  “Being a disable person does not mean incapable to work and earn money for oneself. It is not good to always look for charity from individuals and organizations. This is why we have focused on faming to raise money and support our children,” she explained.The Life is Good Disable Organization is made up of 30 people, all of which are physically challenged, including being deaf and blind.Kougbay Z. Kulah, coordinator of the Nimba County disabled community, said that there is a need for members of the disabled community in Nimba to get access to quality education and health care.“We want the government to provide us technical training in soap making and dyeing clothe. Our children need scholarships to get educated as well,” he said.  He said there are over 8000 disabled people in Ganta, Nimba County who need some form of support from the government, and many of the programs designed for members of the disabled community in Liberia are not reaching those in the rural areas.Mr. Kulah said because of the importance of food security the disabled community is calling on the government for more supports to produce food.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
