Value Addition

Value addition is a very significant Rural Development Strategy when it comes to achieving Economic Development as a county. At AWAK, we define Value addition as the Economic enhancement on the agricultural produce through changing the raw agricultural products into something new by packaging, processing, cooling, drying, extracting or any other type of process that differentiates the product from the original raw commodity.

We have made tremendous strides in our work with women farmer- groups across the country to promote and strengthen Value addition /cottage industries through our Intercounty Peer-to-Peer learning exchange program (IP2P). Through the program women farmers take first hand lessons from selected lead farmers who have perfected the art of value addition and have made substantial incomes from the same.
