Incatema promotes farming as a means for eradicating poverty alongside Agronomists Without Borders

9 June, 2020

For the third consecutive year, Incatema Consulting & Engineering has renewed its commitment to the Agronomists Without Borders Foundation, for the purposes of contributing to the quality of the various projects they implement to eradicate poverty in developing countries, by fostering farming activity in the zones where they intervene.

Since its foundation, Agronomists Without Borders has set up three farming schools and two cooperatives in Tanzania, which carry out training projects tutored by groups of farmers. These training courses include cross-cutting aspects such as gender approach, environmental protection and adaptation to climate change.

This project, which began in 2018 and will continue throughout 2020, has trained more than 3,000 people and consists of 80 groups of farmers dedicated to fruit and vegetable farming.

At Incatema we are aware of the need to collaborate with entities committed to projects that favour progress in developing countries such as Tanzania. In this regard, Agronomists Without Borders promotes horticulture in Iringa, one of the regions that presents the highest levels of malnutrition in under 5-year olds in the whole of the country, despite being one of the regions with the greatest potential for market gardening.
