The East Africa Dairy Development (EADD) program is designed to boost the milk yields and incomes of small-scale farmers in Africa so they can lift their communities out of hunger and poverty. With help from a $25.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the second phase of EADD will work with more than 200,000 farmers to improve dairy production and access to markets over the next four years.
Building on the success and lessons learned in Phase I, the vision for EADD II is to provide an additional 136,000 smallholder farm families the opportunities to create financial independence and social equality. Together with our program partners, we are changing the nutritional landscape in East Africa, one family, one community at a time.
