Most Indigenous Communities are located in upland and hilly areas characterized by marginal lands . thus,  most communities suffer from very low productivity owing to the difficulty in cultivating the terrain. PAFID provides direct technical assistance to communities in developing farm plans for the establishment of Agro-Forestry farm systems within their selected sites in the community. To this end PAFID utilizes the expertise of its personnel who are highly skilled and specialized in upland agricultural systems  and employ both traditional and scientific methods in agricultural propagation.
