In this project, we work in partnership with about 720 farmers organized in 48 Self Help Groups to pursue the goal of increasing production and marketing of White Sorghum and Green Grams in West Pokot County and the surrounding region.  Some of the Key Strategies we use to implement this project include the following:

  1. Sensitizing and Mobilizing farmers to organize and work together in Self Help and Producer groups
  2. Providing farmers with training in Group dynamics
  3. Providing farmers with farm inputs such as certified seeds and bird repellent tapes
  4. Providing demonstration training and facilitation on improved agronomic and postharvest handling practices
  5. Providing farmers with access to ready market for the surplus produce targeted for the market
