NCBA CLUSA’s USAID-sponsored Farmer-to-Farmer program sends American farmers and agribusiness professionals on 2-3 week agricultural development assignments, promoting sustainable economic growth and agricultural development worldwide. Volunteer technical assistance from U.S. farmers, agribusinesses, cooperatives and universities helps smallholder farmers in developing countries improve productivity, access new markets and conserve environmental and natural resources. Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers carry out a wide variety of projects. Some volunteers work with smallholder farmers to improve production techniques or help better market their crops. Others might work with an agricultural processor to solve a production bottleneck or to increase their level of food safety. Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers also work in cooperative development, business planning and agricultural lending, among other areas.

Farmer-to-Farmer assignments in Senegal focus on technical assistance in three sub-sectors : environmental conservation, horticulture, and the millet value chain.
