NCBA CLUSA’s Farmer-to-Farmer Special Program Support Project Zambia (F2F SPSP Z) program will focus on the peanut value chain, assisting local farmers in increasing their annual income through targeted technical expertise provided by Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers. Eight two-week volunteer assignments will be fielded over 12 months. At the end of the program, through the knowledge provided by volunteer technical assistance, 16 Zambian host farmers, 40 percent of whom will be women, will earn more income through increased production, but also through value added activities of drying, processing, and storing. Volunteers, program staff and Zambian farmers will share technical advice with relevant government agencies, donors, universities, and development projects making the information widely available.
