The LYF has been developing and running its Smallholder Support Network in Africa for three years now, and it is producing some amazing results. Launched in Kenya in 2010, the SSN now includes several core elements:

  • Weekly radio broadcasts (reaching millions of farmers)

  • SMS (text message) interactive service, enabling small farmers to text questions to the radio panels

  • Comprehensive training manuals available to local colleges to deliver face to face in farmer communities

  • Website for farmer co-operatives and NGOs to use to access information and advice

The SSN is now running successfully in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC); in 2014, we aim to expand it in to tea farmers in Tanzania and to coffee farmers in Ethiopia.
