In trying to tackle poverty at a larger scale FRIEND has embarked on a nationwide food security program encouraging every family to have a home garden and communities to consider commercial cash crop farming to help in import substitution. FRIEND has identified the three issues of Food Security, Environment conservation and Health as major issues affecting the rural and under served communities it works with. A total of twenty five Change Agents from various areas in the Western and Northern division have been selected by FRIEND and have undergone special training in Lautoka this month looking at these issues closely and getting equipped to work with their communities in these areas.
