As an organization we realized that there was a
gap in area of production and agri-business
skills limiting farmers in the county to remain in
extreme hunger and poverty hence leading to
poor living standards. We have come up with one
major tool that can uplift farmers in the region
i.e. Training and demonstrations. Farmers have
so far realized and embraced training beyond our
expectations .We identified platforms that can
help the organization to reach out to many
farmers across the region of kakamega
as
follows;KARDEP



Extension services-Training farmers in
groups
Radio program-Training farmers every
Tuesday on Mmust fm 7:30pm-8:30pm.
Networking and partnerships-Working closely
with likeminded organizations.
