For Active Learning by Ownselves Rather Than Watching
New material "Fun Fun Farming! "Road to Farming as a business" which was registrated into the library in FY2016 is an enjoyable learning content by using gaming system.
It is not the way of studying that we watch the materials passively as ever, do the game by ownselves with deep consideration and can get a lot of knowledge. JICA-Net Library staff also played the content, felt hard to harvest the crops and make the profit if we do not choose each answer or plant seeds systematically even we are in the simulated situation. This material is really useful to lean what agricultual business is.
The apperance of the new type material in JICA-Net will be expected to use practically in actual scene.
For a smart phone [iOS/Android], you can download the application from App Store/Google Play.

" Fun Fun Farming! "Road to Farming as a business""
This game "Fun Fun Farming" is inspired by the Smallholder Horticulture Empowerment and Promotion (SHEP) approach promoted by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) along with the people of African countries. The SHEP approach, which was launched in Kenya, aims to implement "Farming as Business" with farmers taking the leading role. We hope you'll try the "Fun Fun Farming" that is practiced by African farmers.
