COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT: DEVELOPING THE 16 VILLAGES AROUND THE FFF FARM.

FOUNDER’S INVITATION

In 2018, we chose to transform barren semi-arid land into a commercially viable farm on its own, but at the same time committing ourselves to improve livelihoods and create job opportunities for the rural communities surrounding the farm. Farm for the Future (FFF) is now well established in Ilula, Iringa and the foundation for commercially viable farming has been laid with recent investments in irrigation and development of high value crops for the market.


Now it is time to also welcome investors and partners to become involved not only in the commercial farm, but also in further development of the local communities surrounding it. There are 16 villages with approximately 27,000 people located around the farm. Together we can build rural community resilience. A resilient rural community would mean a community with access to affordable and nutritious food and a community of people all having a living wage income from their own farm/garden and/or work for others such as part time for FFF. The goal is to create more resilient communities after a 10-year development period. This is the systematic social and economic empowerment program we invite you to participate in. In order to have a suitable vehicle for this community development work, FFF initiated the establishment of the NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) called Agronomic for Community Empowerment (ACE) in 2019.


During the start up years, ACE has proved that our model of commercial farming and community development in the same arena start to give results. It gives solid, and we believe, positive change that can be sustainable. We are framing this social impact investment opportunity in a way that can attract owners and managers of both large and small organizations but also individuals who would like to donate some money to help create a better world.


We know the situation in the Community today. ACE programs were developed following the results of the Baseline survey report conducted in the 16 villages that are around the FFF farm. The report highlighted issues of unemployment, low farm productivity, poor farming knowledge and malnutrition, which led to ACE developing 4 programs to empower the community.
