Emmanuel Relief and Rehabilitation International of Canada is testing a solution in Mwanza to improve the condition of women and the sustainability of farming innovation. Several women will be identified as lead farmers and trained as Master Trainers (MTs) to run and operate three cost-effective and grass-roots Agricultural Technology Hubs (ATH). The ATH will provide access to information technology, the latest farming practices, technology solutions in irrigation, and training opportunities. MTs will learn the scientific rigour of testing, practice decision-making and leadership (within ATH environments), share knowledge and support other farmers.
