Ashoka Fellow
The Gambia
Fellow Since 2000
Njawara Agricultural Training Centre (NATC)
This description of Badara Jobe's work was prepared when Badara Jobe was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000.
Badara Jobe has developed a grassroots, farmer-to-farmer approach to sustainable agriculture that builds capacity and self-reliance to confront the climate changes characteristic of the Gambia and surrounding countries in West Africa. His approach, which encourages farmers to use innovative farming techniques as well as to be creative problem-solvers, is being replicated in four areas on either side of the Gambia River. Badara is working with Ashoka Fellow Binta Sarr in Senegal to bring this approach to farming communities near the border between the two countries.
