About 2/2: … OUR VISION – We envision Asian rural farming communities: Where we, small men and women farmers and producers, and our families as well, are free from hunger and poverty, are happy and in good health, and live in peace and prosperity;  

Where we own or have access and control over the lands we till and other basic productive resources; nurture our farmlands through appropriate, integrated and environment-friendly agricultural practices and technologies, get fair market for our products, have control over our goods and services; and,

Where we are self-reliant, educated and able to participate in development processes through politically strong, socially responsive, culturally sensitive and economically viable farmers’ organizations.

OUR MISSION:

We want to be a very strong and influential voice of small men and women farmers in Asia. We endeavor to be a strong lobby and advocacy group for farmers’ rights and development, genuine agrarian reform and mainstreaming of sustainable agriculture in regional and national policies and programs. We also want to be a facilitator for our members’ commercial activities in trading and marketing of sustainable agricultural products. We are also a venue for solidarity and exchange of information on agriculture and farmers’ development among our members.
