Members of the association now have much needed spades, bush knives and files, which will increase their productivity. Having these tool kits supplied was voted and agreed upon by the majority of SCFA members during their 2016 Annual General Meeting.

This Premium project coincides with a replanting pilot project aimed at replacing aging coconut trees.
