Life changed for a local villager, Mohammad Yousuf in Panjshir Province when he found out about the National Horticulture and Livestock Project, which helped him and many other farmers in this mountainous province learn how to plant orchards. Since 2008, the project has helped farmers plant over 2,000 jeribs (400 hectares) of grape, almond, apple, and peach orchards.
