Africa RISING –NAFAKA partnership benefits over 50k households in Tanzania, exceeding targets

The partnership between two projects funded by USAID, Africa RISING, and NAFAKA, and whose goal is to promote integrated packages of technologies to smallholder farmers to sustainably increase their agricultural production, has benefited over 50,000 rural households in Tanzania.
