Agriculture & Entrepreneurship

At PITARP, we realise that agriculture is the mainstay of our communities and therefore it is their main source of livelihood. To this end therefore, we endeavor to transfer relevant technologies to our beneficiaries that are in line with increased agricultural productivity while simultaneously addressing sustainable environmental management. Agriculture deals with the production of crops and animals whereas entrepreneurship refers to enterprise establishment, management and growth; although it is not limited to agriculture.

Strategic Objectives

Our strategic objectives under agriculture and entrepreneurship are as follows:

  1. Use community technology transfer to empower communities with modern, efficient and environmental friendly sustainable technologies for increased agricultural production.
  2. Harness entrepreneurship in agriculture and other sectors for employment and livelihood creation, and product diversification.
  3. Promote agribusiness, value addition and efficient / non-wasteful post-harvest handling to ensure a higher return and reduce wastage for our farmers.

 

We work with local governmental agencies and non-state actors in the following areas:

  • Financial literacy for farmers
  • Small scale fish farming
  • Container farming and backyard gardens
  • Traditional high value crops cultivation
  • Kitchen gardens cultivation
  • Post-harvest handling and value addition
  • Permanent bed agriculture and agroforestry
  • Farm planning
  • Irrigation agriculture
  • Climate-smart agriculture
  • Greenhouse horticulture farming
  • Shade net farming
  • Poultry farming in improved breeds
  • Small ruminant farming (i.e. sheep and goats)
  • Agribusiness and agricultural product value addition
  • Sustainable energy initiatives: energy-saving stoves and biogas


Adolescent & Youth Health - Adolescence and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Policy Rights (AYSRHR)

For the youths in Western Kenya, the onset of adolescence brings not only changes to their bodies but also new vulnerabilities to human rights abuses. Many girls are forced into unwanted sex, early marriage, female genital mutilation, and cultural practices which puts them at risk of unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV, and dangerous childbirth. In Western Kenya, majority of new HIV infections are among young people. Similarly, about one fifth of girls below 19 years have begun childbirth. We aim to provide evidence to guide understanding of sexual and reproductive health issues for adolescents and young people, including unintended pregnancy drivers and HIV vulnerabilities. We also strive, where possible, to scale up evidence-based SRHR approaches to improve outcomes.
