USAID, EU Programme Benefit Farmers

A programme funded by the USAID and the EU helps small-scale farmers ward off hunger and generate income by commercialising indigenous plants

A programme funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the European Union (EU) has helped small-scale farmers in dry areas of Zimbabwe ward off hunger and generate income by commercialising indigenous plants.

The programme, which is designed to teach harvesting and production skills and to link collectors or farmers to buyers and markets, has already benefitted 8 000 small-scale farmers.

The underlying idea of the project is to concentrate on indigenous plants that has a high nutritional, pharmaceutical or other value but were not being used to their full potential.
