Agritech is a social enterprise firm whose vision is to provide farmers with modern farming knowledge and techniques by leveraging technology to provide offline and online expert level knowledge and extension advice in their fields.
As Agritech we have been equipping over 100 smallholder farmers to practice modern and improved farming. We offer them transforming training of practical and innovative ways of production. W have seen their production increase and we aspire to help them much more.
We have also trained a group of 25 women who have formed a cooperative in which they have learnt improved crop and animal management. These women's livelihoods have changed because now they are able to grow and produce and hence support their families and also sell some of their products to their communities.
We also have partnered with youth organizations to conduct training in which we are helping young people to embrace farming as a business. We offer these groups with investment opportunities along the Agri value chain and support them establish their own enterprises like commercial vegetable production. Moreover, we help them market their products and link them to farmers.
So far, we managed to reach out to over 50 youths across the country through such initiatives. We have also started a practical production unit where we produce and invest as Agritech. We use this production site as a place where farmers can come and learn through observation of modern agricultural innovations and initiatives so that they adopt and practice in their farms for increased production. We have engaged over 30 farmers in this model.
