GPFA joins with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement projects. Our expertise benefits farmers and their livelihoods. Under a USAID sub-contract arrangement with Roots of Peace, GPFA will recruit farmers from Paktya and Paktika Provinces interested in establishing commercial orchards during 2010-2011 on new land. A total of 2,000 hectares of new land is to be planted by GPFA farmers in these two provinces over the project period. The project will support the establishment of a GPFA program office in Paktika Province.
