Extension Africa is on a mission to create a reliable agribusiness extension system for African farmers.
We call our extension agents “Farmer Business Associates” for a reason! Our associates are selected from the farming communities, are tech-driven, trained on the best agronomic and business practices, and have a deep understanding of the local context.
Africa is uniquely positioned to meet the challenge of feeding itself and the world, and spur economic growth. However, this potential is still met by a declining efficiency in production by rural farmers. The link to these farmers is still weak and innovations are barely adopted. This creates an urgency for an efficient system to deliver life-saving innovations to the last mile.
This is our WHY of Extension Africa!
We are creating reliable and efficient channels to connect rural farmers to Global Supply Chains.
