According to Uganda's Ministry of Agriculture, for every 5,000 farmers, there is only one extension agent to serve them. There millions of farmers across Uganda that spend a whole year without any interaction with an extension agent. We provide a free medium of information exchange where farmers ask any questions related to agriculture in their own languages, on any kind of phone, free of charge and receive feedback from extension officers around the country.

Our extension service heavily relies on partnerships with existing actors in the agricultural extension ecosystem. We integrate within their traditional extension to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. Some of our the key partnerships include nonprofit organizations providing conventional agricultural extension services such as World Vision Uganda, Sasakawa Global 2000 and District Local Governments. Our extension service uses a variety of technologies to serve farmers irrespective of what kind of phone they have.
