Event Details: Gender Mainstreaming in Agriculture and Rural Development Training

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
