Alliance Building & Partnership
Through the social networks like whatsapp, twitter, lnstagram and facebook, we have reached both national and n‹aw seeking international partnership through EU registration. We have brought industry players closer to the youth like marketers who find it easy to offtake produce from our farmers.
We also partner with Royal media services and TV47 whereby our youth farmers are frequently interviewed and as a result gain national marketing of their produce.
