Guinea-Bissau: Programme Overview and Projects

Organic onions - an effective strategy against hunger
It’s actually absurd: although the region is fertile, almost the only onions available in Guinea-Bissau are imported from Senegal and Holland. But domestic cultivation only has positives: it is an effective way of fighting hunger and providing families with urgently needed cash.
Organic farming in Guinea-Bissau is making soil fertile
SWISSAID trains farmers in Guinea-Bissau in the production of organic fertiliser. Unused soil is made fertile and woodland is protected.
Women Join Forces in New Initiative
Increased production and improved market access − women farmers in the Bula region aspire to attain these goals by forming an association. SWISSAID supports the new initiative for women who want to work for better living conditions in a number of villages.
