Exactly a year ago, we started writing a plan to completely rethink our online platform, to create a platform that suits our needs, to have a platform that caters for cross-fertilization between people across borders and to find a technical partner that can help us grow our online network.
Today, the plan is reality. With a small and dedicated team, we created the first release of a whole new platform and we’re ready to invite you to join us in our new home. We’re excited and nervous at the same time. We hope you’ll like what we’ve built and we hope you think it will be a better experience, but we’ll only know until you all start interacting on the new platform. http://agriprofocus.com

Coffee toolkit Sustainable coffee as a family business Available Online for Download Now!
The first toolkit to include women and youth in the coffee sector has been released today- a joint collaboration between the Sustainable Coffee Program, Hivos and AgriProFocus to address the inequalities that women and youth in the coffee supply chain experience in relation to access to trainings, land ownership, inputs and income. These issues create a generation demotivated to stay in coffee farming, which poses a great threat to coffee pro-duction as a whole.
