Ripple Effect webinar: How can NGOs motivate and sustain Volunteer Farmer Trainers?

Sylvia Auma - Large

Join Ripple Effect online on Tuesday 27th June 2023 at 4pm UK time to discuss how to motivate and sustain volunteer farmer trainers once donor funded projects end.

In Ripple Effect’s programmes, volunteer farmer trainers (VFTs) are project participants who demonstrate willingness and aptitude to share sustainable agriculture training with other farmers from their group and community.

This one-hour webinar will summarise key findings from Ripple Effect’s research into the sustainability of a VFT model post-project in Uganda and Kenya. The research was funded by USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance’s Implementer-Led Design, Evidence, Analysis and Learning (IDEAL) activity. A presentation of the research’s key findings will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with experts in the field of community-based volunteers.  

Speakers and panellists include:

  • Carl Wahl, Senior Advisor – Agriculture Team Food Security & Livelihoods Division, USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance
  • Sagar Pokharel, Chief of Party, Apolou and Resilience Challenge Fund, Mercy Corps Uganda
  • Meshark Sikuku, Regional Farm Systems and Sustainability Coordinator, Ripple Effect
  • Winnifred Mailu, Head of Thematic Support and Capacity Building, Ripple Effect
  • Titus Sagala, Country Director, Ripple Effect Kenya
  • Mike Coburn, Executive Director, Ripple Effect US
