Our small-holder farmers have participated in pumpkin production under guidance of the agriculture expert Community Mobilisation Against Desertification (C-MAD) . It’s founder has been working in the field for more than 35 years. Moreover, our farmers participated in a food-handling training by an external organisation called Agricycle . The CEO Patrick and his team are an official partner of the Food and Agriculture Organisation and have a network of over 90,000 small-holder farmers all over East Africa.
Charles’ and Patrick’s passion for improving the lives of his farmers still goes on.
