CRS has worked in Uganda since 1965, initially providing emergency assistance to Sudanese refugees living in the north. Over the years, CRS has expanded its programming to also address development needs in western, central and eastern Uganda. CRS’ projects in Uganda currently include agriculture, microfinance, peace building and youth. CRS Uganda implements its programs through partnerships with local organizations, including the Catholic Church, other faith-based organizations and community entities for maximum impact and sustainability.
CRS will be submitting a proposal in response to the 2017 USAID Food for Peace (FFP) Development Food Security Activities (DFSA) Request for Applications (RFA).

Gender differences and inequalities in allocation of resources and power affect the ways in which value chains operate at every level. Understanding those inequalities is critical to effectively address weak linkages that hamper upgrading quality and growth as well as poverty reduction and empowerment.
To make value chains interventions work for both women and men, AgriProFocus, has since 2013 organized gender in value chains coaching trajectory that provides on-the-job and tailor-made support to organizations with the objective of building the capacity of staff through active experimentation with real life cases from their work.
The Coaching trajectory involves 2-10 organisations who are coached and trained in gender in value chains mainstreaming. On gender in value chains, the aim is to increase business and public interest by showing the economic benefits or missed opportunities in the agriculture sector.

ICCO Coopération en partenariat avec AgriProFocus et FSAS organisent un formation sur l'intégration du genre et jeunes dans les chaînes de valeurs agricoles.
Pourquoi cette formation
La situation actuelle des femmes et des jeunes est qu’ils jouent un rôle essentiel dans les chaînes de valeur agricoles mais leurs contributions restent souvent invisible car ils se trouvent dans les maillons les moins valorisés ceci a un impact considérable sur le développement de l'agriculture en général et sur le développement de la chaîne de valeur en particulier.
Cette formation a pour objectif de renforcer les capacités des professionnels des organisations et entreprises au Burundi dans la conception et la mise en œuvre d’ interventions visant le développement de chaînes de valeur équitables et inclusives prennent en compte la dimension genre et jeunes.

Women living in poverty occupy a large and growing role in agricultural production in developing countries, leading many development practitioners to focus interventions targeting women on production-related activities where scale can more easily be achieved. However, with the spread of the market systemsdevelopment approach, practitioners are identifying innovative ways to address market constraints and catalyze women’s economic empowerment through new entry points. Examples include interventions that promote roles for women as traders and intermediaries, as key providers of extension or veterinary services, or in marketing and retail sales.
This webinar follows the recent publication of a BRIEF supported by the Leveraging Economic Opportunities (LEO) project, which seeks to enhance USAID programs, projects, and activities focused on creating inclusive market syst... Read more

TANZANIA GENDER IN VALUE CHAINS COACHING TRAJECTORY 2017
Women play crucial roles in agriculture value chains but often times their contribution remains invisible. Evidence shows that enabling women to have equal access to inputs, services, and land improves yields. It also shows that female farmers often pay greater attention than men to crop quality and that productivity increases as a result of increasing their access to technical training.
In order to make value chains work for both men and women, AgriProFocus Tanzania is inviting you to participate at the very first Gender in Value Chains Coaching Trajectory that provides value chain actors and practitioners on the job guidance on real life cases to put gender sensitive ways of working in practice.

Women and youth play a significant role in food production and supply chain. Interventions that are gender aware are greatly and positively impacting on their constituencies.
AgriProFocus Ugandan collaboration with KIT, ICCO, HIVOS and F&S therefore; presents to you an opportunity to register and participate in the 5th coaching trajectory in gender and value chains development.

INTERNATIONAL COURSE ON AGRIBUSINESS - Dear members of the Ethiopian Network for Gender Equality in Agriculture (ENGEA), please access the link below for an opportunity to upgrade your skill and knowledge in Agribusiness sector.
We wish you best of luck.
Hello, My name is Selamawit Firdissa. I'm a Gender and Nutrition for BENEFIT Partnership.
The collaborative partnership, Bilateral Ethiopian Netherlands Effort for Food, Income and Trade – BENEFIT, unites the four projects:
- The Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD) Ethiopia project
- Ethiopian-Netherlands Trade Facility for Agribusiness (EN-TAG)
- The Sesame Business Network Support Project (SBN-SP), and
- The Capacity building for Scaling up of evidence-based best practices in agricultural production in Ethiopia (CASCAPE) project.
These projects together sustainably improve agricultural production, farmers’ income and trade of agricultural commodities, resulting in a market effect on food and nutrition security of rural households in Ethiopia, more employment and local economic development. I hope this net-work will create an opportunity for us to link, share our experience and learn from others.
Here we are! Graduation of 2016 candidates
A Gender coachee presenting his case study at the closing workshop today
Today AgriProFocus Uganda is having its closing workshop for the 4th AgriProFocus GVC coaching trajectory 2016. Reflecting on key lessons and successes gained during the trajectory. More to come.
My experience with AgriProFocus 4th gender trajectory 2016.
I have gained a lot of knowledge from this gender trajectory for example I have learnt how to build a good case study, develop a Gender action plan, formulate a Gender policy and follow up on its indicators during and after program implementation.I am sure this will go a long way in improvinig the performance of my organization in its effort to mainstream gender in barley and beans value chains in Kabale, Kanungu, Kisoro and Rubanda districts
This is to thank AgriProfocus for taking us through the Gender trajectory 2016. As Amatheon we had an interest to integrate Gender perspective into our Value Chain Development but did not know where to start from. Having participated in the 4th Gender AgriProFocus Trajectory, the company has made a bold step towards integrating a gender perspective in our value chains. We have completed a situational analysis and developed a gender strategy to be implemented soon.
I would like to encourage and appeal to those who have not had an opportunity to participate in the 2016 trajectory to register for the upcoming one-2017. For there are lots of learning and experience sharing opportunities integrating gender in our organizational Value Chain interventions.
