Introducing the ELITE Bag VideoSeptember 29, 2014 by Diana Coombs
Empowering Lives recently created a video on how to use our ELITE grain storage bags, which are specifically designed to protect maize and other grains without the use of chemicals. It’s a unique solution to the problem of weevils and post-harvest loss.
Over the past few weeks, the video has been shown in a number of villages to groups of anywhere between 50 to 200 farmers each. These gatherings, called Mobile Training Units (MTUs), are put on by an organization called TechnoServe, which has partnered with ELI in order to show the video and promote ELITE bags. This is the first time MTUs have been used, and ELI has been invited to be a part of it.
Our video will be shown to several thousands of people by the end of this year. We are excited that ELITE bags will be introduced to so many farmers and communities in need of better, more effective ways of protecting their harvests and thus being able to provide food and income for their families. Please pray with us that the video and the bags would have a far-reaching impact across East Africa.
