About US:

Farm Africa, founded
in 1985, is an international non-governmental organization working in Uganda,
Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. We drive agricultural and environmental change to
improve lives. Our strategy has three pillars: agricultural expertise,
management and preservation of ecosystems, and the power of business to drive
prosperity. We believe Africa has the power to feed itself and are helping make
this happen by establishing and spreading the best farming and forestry
techniques so that poor farmers and herders have more food to feed their
families and to sell. We help smallholders manage their natural resources
sustainably so that they can withstand climate change challenges and shocks and
ensure their families have enough food in the future as well as now. Farm
Africa works in partnership with communities, government, local and
international organizations, and the private sector to innovate, learn and
share best practices for maximum impact of our projects.

About Project:

aBi Development Ltd (formerly aBi Trust) awarded Farm Africa and the
North East Chilli Producers Association (NECPA) funding for a three-year
project, October 2018 to September 2021 focussed on creating a more competitive
and profitable chilli value chain within Lira, northern Uganda to capitalise on
growing international demand for varieties of Ugandan African Birds Eye (ABE) dried
chillies. The project is aimed at strengthening the technical capacity of NECPA
and their extension team to support market orientated chilli production across
their entire area of operation. Key project activities include; delivering an
enhanced extension package to 3,000 (120 groups of 25) chilli farmers in Aromo,
Barr and Amach sub-counties; reforming input supply within Aromo, Barr and
Amach sub-counties to ensure there is an adequate flow of high-quality inputs
to service growing demand from farmers; supporting NECPA to obtain the proper
certification and licencing required in order to begin accessing and selling
their farmers’ chillies directly into high-value export markets. At the same
time, the project also seeks to promote greater inclusivity within the value
chain, encouraging female and youth led production by educating on gender
mainstreaming and creating new enterprise opportunities.
