Agriculture & Livestock

Our goal is to improve food security, income, and nutrition by developing highly productive, environmentally sustainable farming livelihoods. Trained farmers with access to markets and finances can grow more, earn more, and feed their families.

We develop value chains for smallholder farmers by combining capacity building and extension services, and link them to markets to sustain the results. Our extension service providers (community agriculture and livestock promoters) promote good agronomic practices and techniques that farmers can incorporate when managing their farms. They inform and assist other farmers on a variety of farming techniques and provide various services. Promoters profit from selling low-cost inputs to farmers. We organize producer groups of farmers and provide them with technical support to cultivate and use improved varieties of crops and invest in poultry and livestock. We arrange demonstration farms with farmers who lead the producer groups and provide training on modern cultivation techniques. Our cooperation with government agencies and partners allows maximum, sustainable impact.

Our goal is to strengthen market systems by building sustainable, pro-poor value chains. We will improve agricultural production and agriculture-based nutrition through extension services on agronomic practices, and grow nutrient–dense vegetables and raise livestock rearing. We will also promote climate-smart agriculture.
