Building Our Communities
Benis-Agri Togo our local partner NGO is established to address the improved production, post-harvest processing & storage, marketing & even export as well as environmental (weather, drought and water) risk issues for farmers and food security in the country. A transformation agenda from small-scale subsistence farms to mechanized, more commercially viable farms is a consensus mandate we are bringing to remote farming communities in Francophone West Africa starting with the Republic of Togo.

Our extensive grass-root consultative meetings like the ones held at Afagnan Kpetsou, Kara, Agome glazou, Yalla-Akebou, Agbelouve, Blitta, Ewe and Kouve revealed that the farmers do not wish their youths to go through the same hard labour with little returns to show for their farming efforts. Our project will encourage the youths to learn about farm tractors and modern hands-on agricultural practices. There will be in-class and field hands-on training in our demonstration farms for the youths.
The project will have positive social impact on the livelihood of youths, women and the communities. There will be gainful employment, increased food production, expansion in agricultural value chain to include processing, storage, marketing and even exports.
