In this picture, the women are selecting, drying and processing the buckwheat seeds. Initially, Hashoo Foundation distributed 1,000 kgs (2,200 lbs) of certified buckwheat seeds among the 200 women farmers. Five months later, the women harvested 13,000 kgs (28,600 lbs) of buckwheat seed of which, 11,800 kgs (25,960 lbs) were distributed among the 200 women farmers, and 1,200 Kgs (2,640 lbs) of the buckwheat seeds was retained by the Foundation to replicate the project in other areas of #GilgitBaltistan.

Buckwheat harvesting, collection, seed drying, and manual threshing. The women's hard work paid off!! The production of grain produced from the certified hybrid seeds provided by Hashoo Foundation was higher than the average production from the traditional seeds at a ratio of 20:30. An average of 65 kgs (143 lbs) of buckwheat seeds was produced per farmer. The total yield of the crop was 13,000 kgs (28,600 lbs) against the projected target of 10,000 kgs (22,000 lbs).

The Hashoo Foundation Regional Office Gilgit (ROG) regularly monitored the field activities to ensure proper documentation of the project activities, success stories and the concerns that farmers experienced during the project. The crops were checked to ensure the farmers had properly planted the buckwheat seed, timely provided water and compost, and the fields were adequately protected from the grazing cattle as the plants grew.

Ms. Ayesha Khan, Country Director Hashoo Foundation visited buckwheat project area and held meetings with government agriculture department Baltistan, Pakistan Council of Science and Industry Research (PCSIR) and representatives of Women Business Groups. Ms. Khan shared her vision of agriculture development by engaging women in income generating opportunities to earn a livelihood and help their families. The government officials showed their interest in working jointly on such projects and replicate a successful model to other parts of the Baltistan which have an agrarian potential to grow buckwheat.

#HashooFoundation provides the women farmers with training on buckwheat processing, packaging and marketing; and advice on how to produce quality products to get high returns for their hard work.
The participating women farmers recommended the creation of a well-equipped resource center for product processing in the area to provide a safe working environment for the women farmers to run their business on a sustainable basis in the future.
