NCBA CLUSA’s Farmer-to-Farmer Special Program Support Project Zambia (F2F SPSP Z) program focused 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 were fielded over 12 months. Over the life of the project, volunteers trained 968 people, 59.6% of whom are women, benefitting 5,517 farm family members. Volunteers directly assisted 1,044 people, 59.4% of whom are women. These farmers will be able to earn more income through increased production and value added activities of drying, processing, and storing.
