A digital farmer field school for (certified) cocoa farmers

Strengthening position of farmers in cocoa value chain

The DFFS provides an alternative interface for interactions between farmers, trainers and traders which allows more articulated knowledge exchange. The strength of the DFFS lies in enhancement of the position of both female and male famers to play a more autonomous role and that training can be highly adapted to their needs.

On Friday April 8th the report was presented to Mohamed Fofanah, director of Jula. Jula, a local Business Development Service in cacao development, is partner of FairMatch Support in Sierra Leone and in cooperation with the research group Knowledge, Technology and Innovation of Wageningen University responsible for the testing of the prototype DFFS. The development and implementation of DFFS application is ongoing. In the coming years FairMatch Support is aiming to finalise DFFS in collaborate with diverse investors.
