Training with Farmers' Dialogue facilitators in Rwanda

Farmers’ Dialogue is aiming at mobilising and helping farmers to fulfil their role in producing food, reducing poverty, protecting the environment and natural resources. Those responsible for the programme in Africa have expressed the need of a 'training of trainers', in order to learn about and how to use training and animation tools and be able to run training meetings in their local situation. This will make the programme more sustainable at the African level and give more opportunities to respond to requests coming from outside Farmers’ Dialogue. Training will take place 1-7 November in Nyahururu, Kenya.
