    Consulting Services to develop and adapt the EAFF business Development kit into short multi-media animated training videos shot in English and French with Kiswahili and Kinyarwanda sub titles targeting youth agricultural enterprises The Eastern African Farmers’ Federation (EAFF) was formed in 2001 as a non-political, nonprofit and democratic organization, whose role is to voice the concerns and interests of farmers of the region to enhance their social-economic status and regional cohesiveness.

    EAFF’s establishment was championed by national farmers’ organizations from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo.

    Membership was subsequently extended to Rwanda, Burundi, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and South Sudan. EAFF membership is now composed of 23 farmer organizations serving about 20 million farmers.

    EAFF is one of the IFAD funded investment projects in East Africa and will benefit directly from the outcomes, results and best practices that will be generated and disseminated in this project.

    EAFF secured grant funding from IFAD to implement a youth project dubbed scaling up rural youth access to inclusive financial services for entrepreneurship and employment’.

    This project is being implemented in 4 countries i.e. Kenya, Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda.

    The overall goal of this project is to enhance the current process of raising capital for poor rural youth enterprises (start-up / existing / scale-ups) by mitigating financial institutions risks, increasing interactions with industry experts, acquiring new knowledge and sharing success stories.

    One in four businesses generally fail before their second year, and half do not survive beyond the fifth year; a situation experienced by many youth-led agri-enterprises in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.

  • This is a growing concern in a countries which has very young population coupled with a high youth unemployment rate. Economically viable agribusinesses could help to address this challenge;
  • thriving youth-led agribusinesses are vital for job creation, make agri-enterprises attractive to the youth and hence could contribute towards alleviating youth unemployment.

    Many youth agri-enterprises are confronted with a web of complex challenges that impede their growth, profitability and sustainability.

    The COVID-19 situation is further aggravating the situation of businesses and thus inhibiting them from reaching their full potential.

    EAFF has seen the rise of pandemic created trade barriers that inhibit movement of goods or services within the country and across borders.

    Access to education through physical interactions with professionals in the field will not be an easy task. EAFF therefore would like to adapt the Business Development tool kit that was developed earlier on the project and has been modified during the project implementation to ensure our learners get the best training to develop profitable strategically oriented business plans for possible financing as well as steer their business in the right direction.

    We believe that these small videos will be able to capture fully the importance of business development as well as the how to do good business through planning for it.

    EAFF is therefore looking for a video content developer / animation creator to assist in executing this activity.
