By working with local farmers’ organisations in East Africa, the objective of Vi Agroforestry is to provide knowledge that remains in the region without being dependent on us. The farmers’ oganisations are key to sustainability – when Vi Agroforestry withdraws, the organisations remain and continue the support of farmer families.
A great deal of Vi Agroforestry’s work consists of strengthening the local farmers’ organisations in order for them to fulfil the needs of their members in the best way possible. Our partnership approach are defined as mutually beneficial and long term. By sharing resources and skills, the parties contribute to the attainment of common goals.
