YAVA takes on this challenging work enthusiastically – and seriously. So, we keep score. You're invited to return frequently to track our progress along with us. See our latest mission report here.

YAVA takes the livelihoods of our farmers and the use of local land seriously. Our farmer engagement includes instructing about sustainable farming techniques, creating Village Drying Centers, and the improving cashew trees through a seeding nursery distribution program.

YAVA works with our supplying local farmers as long-term partners.  This takes two forms:

  1. Providing fundamental information on sustainable practices such as mulching, pruning and using locally available fertilizers, and 
  2. Collaborating to improve or create new crop economic opportunities.
