NCBA-CLUSA Supports Vanilla Farmers in Madagascar through Cooperative Development

| Anjali Upadhyay

A total of 841 farmers in Madagascar were trained by highly skilled volunteers under National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA’s Farmer-to-Farmer: Addressing Vanilla through Cooperative Enterprise. The project was a one year small grant with Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA)’s Special Program Support Project (SPSP). Volunteers donated a total of 187 days to help smallholder vanilla farmers, and by the end of the project two new cooperatives were established and operational.
