EPTF LAUNCHES NEW PROJECT (SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES -SAP) IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DMCDD.
Wednesday, 7th February, 2018 saw the launching of a new project — Sustainable Agricultural Practices (SAP) at Moiben -Simatwo Catholic Church in Uasin Gishu County.
The Sustainable Agricultural Practices (SAP) project’s main objective is to ensure poor and marginalized farmers have improved farm productivity and profitability. This will be done through the formation of a farmer-led producer association and stakeholder’s forums championing for improved agricultural support services and policy impact along the poultry, market gardening and bee keeping value chains.
E.P.T.F will ensure regular agribusiness trainings of the registered community members in groups of 10-20 to reach 200 farmers and households in Moiben sub-county (Tachasis, Sessia, Manyatta and Simatwo). The training is aimed at helping these farmers independently make wise agribusiness decisions regarding farming practices that will eventually empower them and their communities.
Invited guests included; officials from the Uasin Gishu County government, Church representatives, Community members and EPTF’s partners.
