Farming Techniques Training Project. Southern Highlands of Tanzania
The Tanzania Highlands project, developed in collaboration with Agronomists Without Borders, has led to the incorporation of a cooperative to operate a post-harvest treatment and product storage platform that supports 6,000 people and extends the scope of its influence to 30,000 indirect beneficiaries in the Pawaga area. The program is based on the idea that the best way to fight poverty and hunger in farming communities is to offer families the best training possible in farming and ranching techniques.
With this model as a reference, the Highlands project has been extended to the Kilolo area, where agriculture, livestock and fruit growing are the main sources of supply for its inhabitants… Based on the technical training given both by Spanish agronomists and local professionals, the project’s next goal is to achieve self-management and sustainability in Kilolo, the same way it has been done in Pawaga. And in the future, to keep expanding these efficient farming work experiences to other areas of the country.
