Project: Scaling out Regenerative Agriculture

CGA partnered with Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) to implement the project dubbed: “Scaling out Regenerative Agriculture through the Development of Pulse Value Chain in Makueni County” for the period July 2020 to September 2021.

The proposed regenerative agriculture (RA) intervention aimed at improving food security and community resilience through adoption of conservation and rehabilitation approaches to food and farming systems among smallholder farmers. The project adopted an enhanced extension service delivery approach that utilizes the Sustainable Village Based Advisor (VBA) Business Model.


Through the program, 110 VBAs were impacted with business skills and knowledge. As a result, growth in the VBA model was realized with entrepreneurship, business expansion and diversification recorded.
