Promoting Sustainable Agriculture
Bacho Vocational School, located in rural Babati, Tanzania, combines traditional farming practices with modern resources and techniques. The school barn and ponds host a wide variety of animals from hogs and rabbits to tilapia. Meanwhile the fields hold local fruits such as bananas alongside crops like squash, peas, and pears, grown from seeds generously donated by farms around the world.
OBA has been proud to support the work of Bacho Vocational School over the last several years with a classroom, tractor and fuel, seeds, and tilapia ponds. In the coming years, the school hopes to build dormitories which will allow more students from all over Tanzania to access their educational programs.
