The Centre practices integrated farming on her 98 hectares of farm land, cutting across livestock farming, crop production, fishery, Poultry, snail rearing/farming, forestry etc. Its primary aim is, therefore, a strategic grass-root socio-economic empowerment of the poor, poverty reduction, job creation, capacity building, and human resources development.

This informs the Centre’s choice for crops like Vitamin A cassava, plantain, corn and tree plants like Moringa Olifera.
