Agri Connexions Africa
Cultivating Sustainable Solutions

Our Work


Our Namibia Market Gardens for Growth and Sustainability Program seeks to improve the opportunities for farmers to diversify their cropping options.

Agri Connexions works with resource-poor farmers to increase food security and strengthen livelihoods in the drought prone Zambezi Region in northeast Namibia. ACA works with farmers to augment their seasonal, dryland cropping of grain staples with vegetable production that takes place year round. This is achieved by facilitating the transfer of skills and procurement of equipment in a self-sustaining way.


Improve access to water efficient irrigation technologies.

Promote sustainable agriculture practices (compost production,
crop rotation, natural pest management) with training and
demonstration gardens.

Develop market links: strengthen the capacity of producers
to supply domestic markets.


What We Achieved In 2016

Skills Development

Water Management and Food Security

Business Development Assistance

ACA’s capacity to produce and be sustainable in long term

Demand-Driven Partnerships 2017

Based on the experiences and lessons learned from Mashandilo Co-operative, Agri Connexions is developing partnerships with new farmers and communities in Zambezi Region who are strengthening vegetable production to provide food and income for their families.

Our aim is to enable our partners to access improved tools and resources by facilitating training and mentorship in production and business skills development and assisting with urgent start-up equipment needs.

Our Partners

Kanono Village

Tendai's group of vegetable producers have come together to tackle common problems like water access. They are developing a joint garden to provide a source of local food for the community to supplement the staple maize (or corn) porridge. Agri Connexions is assisting with training needs and water-efficient irrigation.

Mother’s Support Group on Impalila Island

Women whose lives and families are affected by HIV/AIDS cultivate vegetables to empower themselves and the community with a local source of fresh food. Agri Connexions and IRDNC are assisting with training and mentorship to expand their gardens.

Bwabwata National Park

The Khwe San community in Bwabwata National Park lives in one of the most food-insecure areas of Namibia. Due to high unemployment, limited water availability and poor soils, malnutrition is high. To overcome these challenges, we are working with partners to pilot food production technologies that can provide food for their community.
