This description of Tiyeda Abalah's work was prepared when Tiyeda Abalah was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Tiyeda Abalah has laid the foundation for the revival of a creative and forward thinking agro-pastoral approach to small-scale farming in Togo and neighboring Central Sahel. Her work has been built upon the principles of organic and sustainable cultivation. With a series of critical foundation steps now in place, Tiyeda wants to take the next step in her work: To launch a Sahel-wide youth movement to bring young people back to “abandoned land” and make it suitable for small-scale agro-pastoral production.
