OUR WORK ON FOOD SYSTEMS TRANSFORMATION:
The successful food system transformation shall depend on how millions of smallholder farmers and medium-sized agriculture enterprises are involved in helping change farming practices as quickly and effectively as possible. For this to happen, agriculture needs critical enablers, people who can take up the task to bring others into the sector, without this any agricultural transformation is likely to fail. Farmer's Pride International Investments (FPI-I) is a frontline “change agent” that supports farmers in modifying their farming practices. We are working with country change agents as critical enablers who coordinate our agriculture activities and teams at different stages and go between FPI-I and farming communities, these are people who influence change in farming methods through day-to-day interaction with farming communities in their communities across the world.
As it implements a 9-year Rural and Urban Agriculture Innovative Production program (RUAIPP), with a focus on rural development through Agriculture, FPI-I brings youth and women's economic empowerment activities to life. Operating in 43 countries, across 7 continents, FPI-I's strategy brings sustainable solutions to the global food shortages, by promoting agri-food production activities through its RUIAPP program, an Agribusiness model being implemented using a Cluster or block model of Farming, this model is a cheaper and more affordable means of farming that brings life to rural and urban Agriculture through the power of networking farming communities. Cluster farming uses fewer resources for a more significant yield and brings huge incomes at harvest to farming communities, with this model, FPI-I will be able to set up Knowledge-based Agriculture initiatives in the form of field and on-farm skills and knowledge exchange schools, these are research-based scientific informed activities that bring agroecology systems to life in every rural and urban farming setup, Agroecology is a combination of new and traditional agriculture skills, and integrates technologies, scientific, indigenous, and other kinds of approaches to inform evidence-based hunger and poverty alleviation solutions, as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies that build sustainable food systems.
WHAT ARE FOOD SYSTEMS:
Food systems comprise a group of actors and interactions along the food value chain, from input supply and production of crops, livestock, fish, and other agricultural commodities to transportation, processing, retailing, wholesaling, and preparation of foods for consumption and disposal.
The FPI-I program meets all those mentioned above which are meant to economically empower the world's rural farming communities through skills and knowledge transfer sessions, and the implementation of self-help initiatives before it invests its financial resources into any communities across the world, these strategies build farming capacity, enhance production, teach after-harvesting handling methods, support processing of crops, and connects them to the world markets, as well as share knowledge on how to manage, protect, and restores soil quality, to improve the world's food production in the face of climate shocks and stressors, contributing to the fight against global poverty eradication
FPI-I has grown from being a small youth farming group that formed itself into an Agriculture department in a Zimbabwean founded Community Based Organization called the New Hope Foundation Zimbabwe in the year 2000, https://newhopezimbabwetrust.wixsite.com/nhz-trust and later became an international NGO called New Hope Foundation Global Network https://nhfg-network.wixsite.com/nhfgn
The current big dream then come to life in the year 2010 when the Executive President and founder of FPI-I organized a skills and knowledge exchanges project between China and Zimbabwe dubbed the people to people skills and cultural exchange, this exchange was co-organized by China NGO Network for International Exchanges (CINIE), Beijing NGO Association for International Exchanges, Chinese Universities and other smaller Chinese NGOs who conducted a three days training of trainers workshop for 250 farmers from Zimbabwe's 10 provinces, the training included fieldwork as well as an HIV & AIDS awareness campaign amongst the farming communities.
In September 2015 the dream of making FPI-I a stand-alone organization came to life through its first pilot agriculture project in Eastern Cape, a province of the Republic of South Africa. In 2019, four years after its inception, FPI-I started agriculture projects in other countries as well as the exporting of its membership agro products to countries like China, the UK, France, and South America through free trade zones on the belt and Silk Road initiatives.
Today FPI-I has now grown from being a Zimbabwe-funded NGO to having a presence in 43 countries on 7 continents across the world and has moved its HQ to Botswana, with satellite HQs in the USA, the UK, Tanzania, and South Africa, this decision was taken in the year 2019, c as Botswana is now embarking on a massive high value crops farming activities rollout.
PRESENT IN: 43 COUNTRIES
Zamišljamo svijet u kojem su mladi uključeni u lanac vrijednosti poljoprivrede , ruralne zajednice su univerzalno prosperitetne i lijepe.
Tla su neobično zdrava i produktivna.
Bioraznolikost unutar naših upravljanih sustava je u izobilju i cvjeta.
Ciklusi vode, minerala i energije funkcioniraju do maksimuma.
Zajednice su sposobne osigurati vlastite potrebe lokalno, a prehranjivanje svijeta više nije nužna briga, budući da su osjetljive na rod, jednakost i jednakost, uz poštovanje i vrednovanje lokalnih inovacija u znanju i poštivanje ljudskih prava.
Radimo s vladama i drugim razvojnim partnerima na izgradnji globalnih poljoprivrednih zajednica u kojima građani imaju jednake i dovoljne ekonomske i društvene mogućnosti da poboljšaju svoj životni standard i gdje mogu produktivno doprinijeti ukupnom razvoju svojih zemalja kroz mikrofinanciranje poljoprivrede za održivo i pravedni prehrambeni sustavi.
Podupiranje odgovornosti i održivih poljoprivrednih metoda koje promiču i poboljšavaju korištenje tehnologije za zaštitu tla, očuvanje biološke raznolikosti i staništa te proizvodnju sigurne, zdrave hrane, gdje se prema radnicima postupa s poštovanjem, prema životinjama postupa humano, a živahne zajednice održavaju kroz kreativnost, korištenjem fleksibilnih inovacija.
Our work is guided and informed by research, traditional skills, knowledge, and our beliefs and commitments to Rural Development, Farming Communities Economic Empowerment, Inclusivity, Financial and material Accountability, Peace and Harmony, Courage, and above all respect for people's rights and the value of cultural diversity.
FPI-I's approach to agriculture seeks to establish Agribusiness ventures in Africa by promoting agri-food production activities through the mobilization of farmers and non-farming communities to actively participate in learning soil use, and management skills, production of high-value crops, after-harvest handling, processing, domestic market distribution, and international exporting.
This will create jobs along the respective Agriculture Product value chains that will build sustainable family economies and stabilize national economies. For this to happen, people must be made aware of the economic benefits of agriculture, assist in starting backyard farming projects that will make them realize its economic benefits, promote the growing of high-value globally demanded, value chain development crops, work on getting better yields for better incomes
The projects are done through self-help micro-financing initiatives, and angel and venture capital investments, in which FPI-I will own 30% of each cluster/block farming project for a period of 5 years, this will enhance massive crop production start-up of community processing projects, this arrangement is arrived at after two successive harvesting by a group of farming (Clusters). After achieving its mission, FPI-I will then support the processing and exportation of all high-value globally demanded, cross-border, money-making by-products. Read more>>>>>>>
