About Kilimo Trust

Our Vision
Broad-based wealth creation in East Africa through agriculture and agri-business development.

To catalyze the growth and competitiveness of strategic agricultural sectors for the benefit of a large number of people in East Africa.

Is to make agricultural markets work better for the reduction of poverty and elimination of hunger.

Kilimo Trust is committed to supporting the people of East African Community (EAC) Region, to achieve market-based solutions to food and nutrition security. Therefore, the core business of the Trust is tosupport the transformation of food and nutrition security in the EAC Region away from high risk subsistence farming into lower risk trade-based systems.  

To facilitate this, the Trust is a coordinating HUB for regional markets development programs providing regional solutions to local problems in ways that enhance security of incomes, food, and nutrition in the region.

The ambition is to achieve a trade-based food security system in which all consumers including those who are in farming obtain most of the food they consume by purchasing food that is increasingly processed, stored and distributed to meet different needs and preferences.

Why is this important? Because, the very low levels of specialisation in the production of food commodities by smallholders within EAC, dominated by subsistence farming, encourage the production of food commodities in unsuitable agro-ecological zones, leading to perpetuation of hunger and poverty.

CTA Approves an Eight Month Project on “Development of Training of Trainers’ Manual” for Promotion of Agricultural Value Chains in the ACP Countries
Adaptation to modern value chains is constrained by skill gaps. Such gaps can, in part, be addressed through capacity building but, to date, there is limited training material available to farmers, service providers, companies and students on value chains, agribusiness and related topics. What is available has often been prepared for one country or one project in one country and may not be relevant to others. Moreover, there is relatively little generic material available that can be used in one region or, indeed, throughout the world or that can serve as a basis for adaptation to suit local circumstances. It is on this basis that CTA commissioned Kilimo Trust to develop a Training of Trainers’ manual to build capacity of Value Chain Operators in the ACP countries. Readmore
