Our programs in agriculture increase farmers’ role in the agricultural market, promote climate smart agricultural practices and strengthen cooperatives to become sustainable enterprises.
In Tanzania, we help farming families get more out of the agricultural value chain. Our programs help farmers learn better ways to grow, process and store cash crops — including grapes, tomatoes, rice, coffee, beans, potatoes and vegetables — and, ultimately, increase the quantity and quality of their harvest. We partner with community groups to help them preserve and manage their natural resources in ways that improve their crop and livestock production. And we support farmer organizations to strengthen their technical and organizational capacities so that they can provide sustainable, equitable and quality services to their members.
We also prepare young farmers for future careers in agriculture and related businesses so they are able to change the trajectory of their life and the future of their communities.
