AFRICA MECHANIZATION 2


MISSION: AFRICA MECHANIZATION 

Our mission is to be the best in the world in micro hydro electric and water resource management: by evolving innovative damless hydroelectric and water transfer technology. We create Today’s Tall Tree Nurseries to support Micro Finance for women farmers and their families using the Carbon Tax Fund, a new form of foreign aid. We export agricultural Mechanization into Africa for more productive agriculture.

We envision a world that solves the famine and the        drought problem by creating                        Mechanization in Africa.

A NEW PARADIGMParadigm Shift Mechanization Concept Africa

It is the time for a new look at agricultural mechanization in Africa. A paradigm shift is required:  from one of poverty alleviation to investment for economic growth, in which the focus is on sustainable economic growth.

On average, 700-1,850 tractors are used per 1,000 farmers in Europe and Northern America, exceptionally low levels of mechanization persist in many developing countries: a mere 5 tractors are in operation per 1,000 farmers in Africa. 

Mechanization Concept in Africa
Compare 5 tractors with 1,500 to 1,800 tractors per 1000 farmers

The total number of working tractors would have to be about 3.5 million (7 times more) to put Africa on a par with other regions. Agricultural would have to expand by a factor of about ten to approximately 400 000 tractors per year. Such a growth in tractor sales cannot be achieved immediately but could be in, say, 10 or 12 years. This would require urgent action to stimulate the market to attain sales of the order of 100 000 units per year within two or three years. As a comparison, tractor sales in India in 2005–06 were 264,790 units.

There has been a massive devaluation of many African currencies. This leads to very high cost of agricultural machinery which leads to reduced imports of machinery in Africa.

An illustrative quote (from FAO & UNIDO, 2008) helpfully summarizes the way forward: ‘If agricultural mechanization efforts are to succeed in Africa, there is an urgent need for all concerned, be they farmers, supporters, planners or policy makers,to understand and contribute to agricultural mechanization efforts  in Africa across the entire farming system and with a value chain perspective’.

FAO & UNIDO must know and support our project. Please send a link of this to them… Mechanization in Africa 

How can African prosperity get started?

Mechanization in Africa

Over 60% of farm power is still provided by people’s muscles, mostly from women, the elderly and children. Afford-ability of Africa mechanization is often beyond the reach of the small holder family. You can make a difference in so many lives.

 Decades of counter-terrorism teaches that the best bulwarks against extremism are states that are prosperous and just. With your support, the middle class will band with the underclass to bring about regime changes.

You can help by expanding access to rich-world markets for African goods, particularly in agriculture and the opportunities for other African industry would also expand.

How does the world approach climate change? Unfathomable amounts of carbon emissions can be soaked up by trees? Your support will assist us in developing Today’s Tall Tree Nurseries in Africa.

A young African will move to the city if all he can earn is $10/day. This same African will return to the land because mechanization has changed the whole picture: the farms can now be more productive. Your support will take the pressure off African urbanization, which usually ends in abject poverty or crime in the city.

Designing a Mechanization Strategy in Africa                                        

The main objective of farm mechanization is increasing agricultural production. We focus primarily on the use of tractors as an indicator of all agricultural equipment.

Mechanization in Africa
Mechanization in Africa

The current lack of food security within Africa is a matter of international concern.  Africa Agricultural development should be the major area of focus in any discussion of food security, and mechanization is one of the key elements. 

The small increase observed in these countries did not constitute a big gain in term of adoption of mechanization in these countries compared to the gain and the progress of mechanization in Asia and the Pacific countries for the same period. Compare the number of 32 tractors/1000 farmers of Cote d’Ivoire with 1,500 to 1,800 tractors/1000 farmers in the United States and Canada.

One factor that determines the potential adoption of agricultural equipment is the cost of labor. If the cost of agricultural labor remains cheaper, the farmers do not have the incentive to use costly machinery. This means that agricultural production relies heavily on human power using hand tool technology—not on machinery.

Businesses should rethink how they “sell” tractors

Few efforts in other countries have survived competition from the importation of low-cost tools from countries in other continents (e.g. China and India).

The newly emergent industrial economies such as India, China and Brazil have stepped in and have provided new sources of tractors and farm machinery which are continually coming on to local markets. This machinery is often more suitable for African conditions and is considerably cheaper than machinery manufactured in Western Europe or North America.

The size and the type of tractors matter. In small-scale farming, the powerful and large equipment frequently used in developed countries is irrelevant. The choice will be new  walking tractors less than 75 HP.

Small-holder farmers—especially those with low profits—may still not able to afford a tractor, so a hire-service or rental tractor is a good working model.

Financing Africa Mechanization

 Small-holder farmers cannot afford to buy a tractor without financial assistance. To overcome the financial hurdle, the common advice is to organize farmers into cooperative or association and they can purchase the equipment as a group. This approach works, but it is only efficient in the short term.

One of the major impediments to improving the agricultural productivity in Africa is the financing. Banks are reluctant to finance agricultural businesses because of their high risk and uncertainties. In the past, many African countries had implemented a government-led investment, which failed to achieve the expected results.

In any financial model, the mechanization strategy should be private sector driven, and farmers should be given the option to make payments towards the purchase of their equipment during the harvest using the rental fees as a portion of their payments.

Mechanization in AfricaEnter the world of Living Water MicroFinance Inc. Our company mission is to support women farmers and their families in Africa.

We are looking to bring innovative solutions to the African market. We negotiate with landlords to make land available to these subsistence families for a long term lease over 25 years. We help produce cash crops, which include cacao and inter-cropping with yams and banana plantain. All our seedlings are developed from seed in order to reduce our costs. 

We also set apart a small portion of the land and develop it as a soccer field for the children.

Right now deforestation is causing 15% of the problem of global warming. The carbon dioxide capture of the trees addresses global warming, so the Carbon Tax Fund will support any forestation as long as there is a guarantee of longevity, which is provided by a third party, Living Water MicroFinance Inc.  MicroFinance Logo Mechanization in Africa

Tall Trees Mechanization in AfricaWe start with Today's-Tall-Treesthat is supported by a Carbon Tax Fund, in which every cacao tree that is planted lives for 25 years and has a Net Present Value of $0.49/tree x 100 acres x 200 trees/acre= $9,600  for 200 trees/acre on 100 acres.

Please Note: another calculation of NPV of fruit trees living for 25 years = $0.49/tree plus $1.00/tree for maintenance: $1.49/tree. (Fruit trees are productive for 25 years and then are replaced.)

If we choose to plant longer-living fruit, nut and foliage trees, which will last 50 years on land with a 50 year lease, the Net Present Value support will be $2.59/tree for a maximum of $52,000 for 100 acres. This will happen on some 1.5 acre farms that are managed by women farmers and their families. Actually, there will be a combination of both types of trees with 25 year to 50 year longevity on the same farm.

Mechanization in Africa

Why Cote d’Ivoire?

Good Power Supply

Africa as a whole lacks reliable power supply through a grid.  This hinders business and business development.  It also puts off tourists who are missing out on an amazing part of the world. The only complaint is that the power tends to be expensive.

Good educational system

We recruit all staff locally if possible including management and engineering personnel.  The level of education is good enough to have local expertise.

Existing Industrial Base

There is already an existing industrial base with infrastructure and service companies in business.

Access to markets

Putting the local market aside, Cote d’Ivoire has direct access to ECOWAS  – the Economic Community Of West Africa.  This in itself is an enormous market both geographically and in terms of population. West Africa is increasingly moving forward in all areas with an expanding middle class and potential consumer market.

Government Support

There is also the ongoing Agriculture Investment Program by the Minister for Agriculture in Cote d’Ivoire, which includes increased training for small holder farmers and increase in efficiency of land use.

 Commercial cash crops from Cote D’Ivoire:

  • Cocoa –a third of the world’s cocoa
  • Cashew nuts
  • Rubber
  • Palm oil
  • Cotton
  • Coffee
  • Banana
  • Mango
  • Pineapple

Without specialized knowledge of agricultural machinery any donation schemes usually end up with disastrous consequences: we have the skills. In many cases where governments established tractor-hire schemes to serve small-scale farmers, planning was very short term and management was poorly trained and poorly supported.

We also offer a service to farmers including the provision of spare parts and repair services.African Mechanization in Africa

Partners with our company have a better chance to branch out and become agricultural equipment service providers to their own group members. In this way, business and entrepreneurship can evolve from the bottom up and may spread to medium-scale and larger scale sustainable agricultural mechanization scenarios.

What is the Next Stage?

We provide irrigation and electricity in remote areas without the use of dams to African landlords who cooperate with us. 

In a changing climate, irrigation will become even more important. This suggests that increasing the irrigated area in Africa would make a major contribution to agricultural productivity. Investment in large irrigation schemes would be a long-term process but much might be achieved in small schemes for small groups of farms.

In mechanization terms, this suggests a substantial opportunity for sales of pumps, diesel engines and related equipment. This is a parallel mechanization opportunity, a challenge for local African manufacturing industry to take on.

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  

HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?

1. DELIVERANCE?

Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. 

2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?

After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.

3.  HEALING?

Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!

Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing.   Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.

THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

Is the BIBLE true? 2

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel  lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.” 
  • Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.     Matthew 1:21  It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
To receive Jesus as your Savior… SAY:

Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting  anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions. 

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                                     Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.                                       Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in  the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising.  He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
