The Project aims to engage private sector players in the agriculture and agribusiness sector to invest and take part in policy issues along the Southern Africa agriculture growth corridors. This project will support the Feed the Future (FTF) program to tackle food insecurity and hunger issues in Southern Africa by engaging the private sector in the region. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has provided support for the exploration, research, development and implementation strategy phase with an initial $400,000 followed with a $3,000,000 grant under a GDA partnership with USAID Southern Africa on a one-one match. The NEPAD Business Foundation’s (NBF) RtB Program will accelerate the TransFarm Africa (TFA) fund (private investment) aimed at transformative agriculture along key development corridors that will benefit small holder farmers, and especially women, by integrating them into the main economy as entrepreneurs. The project aims at transforming the lives of rural households to be sustainable, competitive enterprises and to increase the income of small holder farmers.
