Our Mission -To provide sustainable and organic agriculture education and consultation that empowers small farmers to expand crop production in Africa.
We help small-scale farmers improve soil fertility, cut down on their use of commercial fertilizer and pesticides, and form small business groups to pool labor, resources and produce for more efficient local marketing. During the past four years, Go Organic Africa has implemented a broad range of training programs to address the varied needs of the small-scale farming sector.
Our aim is to help vulnerable women and youth in Africa to provide for their large households by introducing them to modern, environmentally sustainable beekeeping as a source of much-needed income. Many of the women are widows or single mothers, and nearly all are subsistence farmers growing little more than they need to feed their families. The average household has between six and seven members, well over half of whom are children of school-going age or younger.
We are helping women’s and youth’s groups to undertake beekeeping or improve their existing beekeeping by training them to construct, manage and harvest Kenyan Top Bar (KTB) Hives. They have also been shown how to add value to their wax; and they are being provided with a ready market for their honey via a new buying & marketing operation run by Go Organic Africa.
