Farmer Institutional Development (FID)
In its technical support to capacity building of small scale farmers, EHCAI follows a systematic approach by supporting activities that increase farmers’ capacity in governance, decision making, production and collective marketing. A combination of these subsequently results into an increase in farmers incomes. Over the years of active engagement with small holder farmers, EHCAI developed this model to provide a systematic approach that strengthens the farmers’ capacities through mentoring and coaching, extension services, information sharing, exchange of experiences as well as dissemination and documentation of appropriate technologies, best-bet practices, and lessons. These are aimed at enhancing farmers’ capacity and ownership.
