With an aim to create self-sufficient communities of life by turning wilderness into fertile land and renewing the community mentally through the mental movement for labour, service and sacrifice, Canaan farmers’ school (CFS) was inaugurated at Tuli on January 31.
The school is being established with the help of Canaan farmer’s school, South Korea under the initiative of Dr. Kim Bum-il principal of the second Canaan farmer’s school. Dr. Kim at the inaugural programme highlighted some tenets of the Canaan farmers’ school, South Korea- hard work, “If you love your neighbour, and if you don’t work, then that is not the true expression of love”. He also expressed hope that there would be a great transformation in Nagaland with in the next few years.
Dr. T. Lima Jamir, director of the school said that the project had been initiated after some members from ABAM attended a crash course at CFS in South Korea a few years back.
He disclosed that a short term and long term crash certificate course would be started soon. He also said the main objective of Canaan school was to make the farmers educated so that there would be a “paradigm shift” in the mindset of the Naga farmers.
