Word From The Chairman
As a membership organization of smallholder farm forestry operators, we are acutely aware of the challenges faced by producers including inadequate technical knowledge and capacity, exploitation at markets and other vulnerabilities due to poor organization and limited awareness among producers.
We are also aware of the opportunities that abound for farm forestry to improve livelihoods of families and communities and to take care of our environment. For this reason, our mission “to strengthen the capacity of member organizations to enable farm forestry producers improve their livelihoods” is designed to reach all potential members so that together we can change the farm forestry landscape in our country.
In this regard, I thank all the people and organizations that have walked with us in this journey to bring change and welcome those who are yet to join us so that we can journey together.
