Plan International Norge and Farmforce to build trust and transparency in the first mile of the agricultural value chains in Uganda
Farmforce – 1. June 2021. By Pauline Hilley
We are proud to announce that we have signed an agreement with Plan International Norge. The project involves 1,200 Ugandan farmers, cultivating green chili and sweet potatoes in the Kamuli, Buyende, and Tororo districts.
In line with the global mission of Plan International Norge, and the program for youth employment in agriculture, called “A Working Future” (AWF), the implementation of Farmforce will aim to tackle child labor and gender inequality by helping farmers to get their production certified (Fairtrade, organic, etc.) and to give them easier access to credit.
The implementation process has already been started, user training will begin in mid-June, shortly followed by the Go Live.
