Focus Area #1

Agricultural extension services

Focus Area #3

Market Access and Linkages

iKnowFarm is committed to promoting market access and linkages for smallholder farmers. We believe that by facilitating access to markets, farmers can not only improve their incomes, but also contribute to the development of a more sustainable and resilient food system. To this end, we provide information and training on market opportunities and strategies for accessing markets, as well as work with local organizations and businesses to create linkages between farmers and markets. Our goal is to help farmers overcome market-related challenges and thrive in their farming endeavors.

Focus Area #4

Promoting gender equity

We are committed to providing training and resources tailored to the specific needs of women farmers, and working with local communities and governments to address the gender-based barriers that women farmers may face.

Focus Area #5

Fostering collaboration

iKnowFarm understands that no single organization or individual can solve the complex challenges facing small-scale farmers on their own. That's why collaboration is a key focus area for the organization. iKnowFarm works closely with local governments, NGOs, and other stakeholders to ensure that farmers have access to the support and resources they need to succeed.
