The mission of the CEFA Foundation is to support the Centre d’Expérimentation et de Formation Agricole (CEFA). The purpose of CEFA is to facilitate agricultural development in the Central African Republic.
CEFA’s goal is to improve food security in the region by increasing the quality and quantity of nutritious foods produced by small farmers. CEFA, is situated in a central location to conduct agricultural research and extension relevant to small farmers.
The United Nations has ranked the Central African Republic (C.A.R.) the second least developed country in the world. The C.A.R. has a population of nearly four million people, most of whom are subsistence farmers (farmers who rely on their own farms and fields for the food needs of their families). Since independence, the C.A.R. has been ravaged by civil war, armed bandits have forced thousands to flee their homes and fields, the country’s infrastructure has been deteriorating rapidly, and the economy is on the verge of collapse.
The citizens of C.A.R. are struggling with high unemployment, malnutrition, hunger, and disease. There are very few aid agencies present in the country with the ability to offer assistance in these areas of need. The Centre d’Expérimentation et de Formation Agricole (CEFA) will focus on enhancing farming processes to improve food security and to show the love of Christ within the African communities through Agriculture development.
