Grasscutters are rodents in Nigeria that play an important role in culture and economy. They have high reproduction rates, are adaptable, and are often kept as pets. Breeding is promoted to improve self-sufficiency and the economy in rural areas.
HIFA and DI Festus Imarhiagbe are working together to empower the people in the villages of Urulokpa and Lokpa in Nigeria to become self-sufficient through agriculture and small livestock husbandry. The concept aims for a circular economy and will enable people to feed themselves and their families. In March, the first steps of training were initiated. HIFA urgently appeals for support for this project.
