Vocational Traing in Sub-Saharan Africa
Both in Namibia and Gambia, the africrops! GmbH, the company behind the brand The Essence of Africa, and its local partners runs vocational training centres to develop organic farmers. These are the first training farms of their kind in Sub-Saharan Africa. The principles of organic farming are trained according to the standards set out in the respective national vocational training curriculums.
From the cultivation of various crops to the use of organic pesticides the students learn everything a good Moringa farmer needs to know. The graduates of the program receive a state-issued certificate with which they of course can not only become Moringa farmers, but are able to find employment in all areas of organic farming.
We are proud that thus far every graduate has been able to find specialized and secure employment shortly after graduating!
