Farm Africa is an

security of smallholder farmers, pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, and forest

About aBi Trust Project:
aBi Trust recently
awarded Farm Africa and the North East Chilli Producers Association (NECPA)
funding for a three-year project focused on creating a more competitive and
profitable chilli value chain within Lira, northern Uganda to capitalise on
growing international demand for varieties of Ugandan African Birds Eye (ABE)
dried chillies. The project will strengthen the technical capacity of NECPA and
their extension team to support market- orientated chilli production across
their entire area of operation. Key project activities will include; delivering
an enhanced extension package to 3,000 (120 groups of 25) chilli farmers in
Aromo, Barr and Amach sub-counties; reforming input supply within Aromo, Barr
and Amach sub-counties to ensure there is an adequate flow of high-quality
inputs to service growing demand from farmers; supporting NECPA to obtain the
proper certification and licencing required in order to begin accessing and
selling their farmers’ chillies directly into high-value export markets. At the
same time, the project will promote greater inclusivity within the value chain,
encouraging female and youth led production by educating on gender mainstreaming
and creating new enterprise opportunities.
