VACID Africa works with grassroots support organizations that mobilize, support, and train farmers such as cooperatives or producer common interest groups. We work with national and apex organizations to create strategies for interaction with their grassroots institutions. We are involved with the federations of producers at the national level supporting them with sustainable business models/structures, strategies, and systems that create wealth at the farmer level. We support them to focus on their downstream groups using the technical service providers we have trained and accredited as mentors and extensionists in our programme wherever we work. We have a collaborative relationship with farmer support organizations at national, regional and continental level.
