Dairy cooperatives in Afghanistan help stabilize rural communities

Listen /

Charmesra Cooperative members meet once a week.

Dairy farmers in Afghanistan are forming cooperatives to not only help them earn money, but also to unite and stabilize communities they live in.

The agency believes that cooperatives are key to improving food security and eradicating hunger- even in countries where there is conflict and insecurity.

Jocelyne Sambira has the story.
