Due to the Russian invasion and military actions in the Black Sea regions of Ukraine, many local vineyards were riddled with landmines. The liberated "dirty" lands do not allow Ukrainian farmers to return to normal life, to restore agricultural productivity and prosperity.
The main idea of the project is to facilitate the removal of landmines and helped reestablish vineyards using modern techniques with farmers from Kherson and Mykolaiv regions (South of Ukraine). By improving farm techniques, addressing supply chain gaps, and supporting local vine makers, the MINES TO VINES project will enhance livelihoods and build peace in war-torn lands.
STEP 1: DEMINE
Working with farmers and local communities to remove the remnants of war.
STEP 2: IDENTIFY THE CHALLENGE
Identifying the agricultural challenges hindering the ability of client beneficiaries to achieve maximum income potential.
STEP 3: IMPROVE
Training farmers in the latest agricultural techniques and providing support for transition to high-volume processing.
STEP 4: GENERATE PEACE AND PROSPERITY
Step 5: Equip a warehouse with solar,refrigerator and generator to become a market place for the farmers to sell and show their products including wine ,dairy products and vegetables which wi enhance their lives.
By repairing gaps in the agricultural value chain, the MINES TO VINES project achieves greater economic independence, a fundamental requirement for peace.
The project will be realized in cooperation with the ROOTS OF PEACE organization and the Ukrainian Association of Craft Winemakers of the Black Sea Region.
