Regional Knowledge Hub for Organic Agriculture in East Africa: a pilot on transforming farmer access to organic training materials and information through digitalization
This pilot project aims to increase access to knowledge on organic farming of up to 30,000 farmers through the digitalization of content and testing of digital trainings. To achieve this the project will:
Simplify/downscale the materials into formats which are easily accessible and understood by the smallholder farmers,
Provide access to knowledge via app and text message to help farmers access the training materials and information in a timely and interactive manner with little or no cost
Develop a strategy for sustaining access to these materials by the smallholder farmers, and
Develop a roll out strategy for implementing similar platforms and tools in the other three Knowledge Hubs (North, West and Southern Africa).
