PROJECT VIDEO - YOUNG FARMERS of RACHA

FAO financed 60 beneficiaries to support agricultural development in Racha. In addition to modern facilities for smoking ham and pig production, farmers were provided with agricultural tools and equipment. Wine producers, mushroom producers, beekeepers and woodworkers who make agricultural tools were among the beneficiaries who received financing. 

This project was implemented by FAO and funded by Austrian Development Cooperation. The project, in addition to direct financial aid, aims to support rural development in Georgia, which is one of the priority directions of the Ministry of Agriculture.
