ETG Farmers Foundation
The ETG Farmers Foundation (EFF) is a non-profit organization established in 2013 by our founding benefactor, the Export Trading Group (ETG). Our goal is to stimulate growth in agriculture and foster the development of rural economies. In collaboration with our partners, the Foundation is laying the groundwork of local market economies, increasing access to inputs, credit and markets, and training smallholder farmers to meet the quality and reliability requirements of the commercial market.

EFF Tanzania ran a pilot project in Zanzibar, Tanzania. The pilot project took place from March to June 2017 at the Mahonda Secondary School (MSS) in Zanzibar targeting an off-the-grid population in Zanzibar. The piloted school had a total of 150 Form 4 students, divided over 3 classes. All Form 4 students had a chance to take an ethanol stove home for a week to test it. The rotation of the stoves and weekly picking up of the ethanol in 5 litres jerrycans (75 litres per week) from the ZSFL went smoothly thanks to the dedication and organisation of one of the teachers at the school and the staff of the ZSFL. The project also made use of local media through television and radio programmes showcasing our pilot project and its impact reaching a further 5,000 people.
ETG Farmers Foundation is a registered not-for-profit working with smallholder farmers throughout Sub-Saharan Africa since 2009. EFF has worked with over 43,000 farmers over multiple value chains: oil seeds, legumes, pulses, cereal, coffee and cashews. Having worked in Uganda, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe through private-public partnerships EFF has created a commercially sustainable inclusive development model. EFF Tanzania implements projects in various areas all over Tanzania with the aim to empower smallholders to be their own agents of change. As smallholders are usually found in off-the-grid areas with little knowledge of alternative cooking methods besides the traditional use of firewood and charcoal, EFF sees this opportunity to further our work with environmental degradation education and healthier cooking methods.
