West Africa – Farmer-to-Farmer Program (FtF)
The West Africa Farmer to Farmer (FtF) Project's primary goal is to generate rapid, sustained and broad-based economic growth through short-term technical assistance in the agricultural sector. A secondary goal is to increase the American public's understanding of international development issues and programs and international understanding of the United States and U.S. development programs.
ACDI/VOCA fields highly qualified volunteers to support international agricultural development activities with an emphasis on improving private agricultural operations in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali and Nigeria along with partners Land O'Lakes and Winrock International. Activities may relate to all aspects of agricultural production and post-harvest activities, such as processing, marketing, credit and input supply, as well as improved agribusiness management, environmental conservation and improved policy and regulatory regimes.
