Accomplishing tasks through collaboration with other individual members, accepting others, bringing their different skills together to achieve a common goal. This entails collectively sharing in the success and taking responsibility for lapses

Building relationships and sharing knowledge with others thus reaching more farmers than we could as individual organization and delivering long lasting change for Small Scale Farmers (SSFs)
