About 80% of Tanzanians work with Agriculture, with 85% of them dedicated to cultivation of food at family levels in a small scale with the most simple technical means. 70% of the cultivation is done only by hand plow, 20% have an ox plow and only 10% have a tractor. Rain is in most cases the only means of irrigation. As a result, agriculture is very seasonal and dependent on weather factors. Farmers' income is low, as all farmers market the same products at the same time. Droughts can be devastating for the farmers.
Training institutions such as the Kilacha Production and Training Center (KPTC) contribute to the professionalization of agricultural production in Tanzania and thus food safety, income and development.
Tasks for online internships at Kilacha include:
* Planning for Farm activities: this include planning activities like planting, fertilizing, harvesting, herding, pest control and increasing productivity.
* Preparation of Workshops & Training: to contributing towards professionalization of agriculture, Kilacha offers educational workshops and training to farmers. You will help prepare content material for this!
* Development of marketing strategies for the sale of agricultural products: you will actively take part in laying out ideas to market the harvested goods.
