Technical Backup

In order to ensure the success of the products and inputs we provide, we have made the application information for the inputs widely available and comprehensible. On top of the physical training groups, this is delivered via WhatsApp, U Can Grow’s mobile app platform and various other digital means.

Market Access

We have partnered with organisations who have access to markets for the goods produced by farmers which creates a circular system. For a smallholder farmer to get market access through our scheme, they will need to be associated with one of the growing programs.Through our partners, U Can Grow and Wild Coast Foods, the farmers' harvest is aggregated, processed and sent to local markets to satisfy local market demand.
