As the result, Mrs. Anna Deonela highly appreciated to the effort and achievements have been made by CBFs, TFs, and YAEs. She noticed that many farmers have applied agricultural innovations introduced by CEDAC. However, she would like young agri entrepreneurs to improve the recording system regarding to their business activities.

With funding support from United States Department of Labor (USDOL) through Winrock International, CEDAC is implementing a project called “Children’s Empowerment through Education Services (CHES)”.
