Community Management Volunteer (Bosaz Foods)
We address the challenges of the lack of unadulterated, gluten-free and allergy free food products in the market, seeing that there are more than 100 000 cases of gluten intolerance per year. We also address the fact that post-harvest loss and knowledge gaps on post-harvest methods exist.
We help to solve those challenges by building a holistic and inclusive African Super-foods value chain to fight food insecurity, hunger and diseases. This is done through capacity building and technical assistance, processing and value addition training as well as access to markets. We partner with community heads and women leaders to identify, profile smallholder farmers, women and youth; we train them on agri-entrepreneural skills, post-harvest methods and techniques, business, financial and marketing skills. For example, we train on different methods of extending the life of staple crops such as plantains, sweet potatoes, etc. by processing them into flours, chips, puree, boiled, fried, pastries and much more. This way we provide beneficiaries with quality education, technical support, reduce post-harvest losses and facilitate market access.
