Since 2009 HRNS has trained 80 000 farmers in five provinces of Central Highlands, introducing efficient scientific methods of coffee growing. Farmer Field Schools and Farmer Coaching Visits are two main forms of training, which covers all topics such as water management, grafting, pruning, fertilization, harvesting and drying, dealing with pests and diseases, etc.
Farmers from various ethnic groups share their stories with us. Those are voices of people from distant lands who have very little connection with the external world. Those are stories about transformations triggered by a comprehensive system of trainings that provide smallholders with unique set of competences and skills, turning them from struggling peasants into confident entrepreneurs.
