From there, together with identified groups on grassroots level FreeKenya assists in the establishment of satellite Resource Centers via the Farmer Field School approach. The created synergy is on one hand the internal capacity building of the group and relevant increase of assets. On the other hand, this Center will serve as a demonstration, training and learning place to develop their agribusiness skills. Young farmers will be selected and trained to become a trainer. Via the Resource Center, they are connected to innovative ideas and equipment in agribusiness, including IT solutions.. A base for collection of the crops and potential opportunities in processing is created. All this, will result in more job creation and development of rural areas.
We are currently in the process of establishing 2 satellite Resource Centres in Oyugis under the Maji Uhai Shamba Pesa project.
