Amba Farmers Voice
Amba Farmers Voice (AFV) is an Agricultural Education TV program produced in collaboration with Southern Cameroons Broadcasting Corporation (SCBC TV) to equip farmers in Southern Cameroons & those in refugee camps and communities with practical skills and appropriate technology to increase food production.
The main goal of Amba Farmers Voice is to utilize video technology to educate poor farmers in rural and marginalized communities affected by violent conflict on appropriate techniques for improving food production across the agricultural value chain.
The videos, shared through digital broadcast television and or on social media can be watched on any smart device.
To help educate farmers, a dedicated team travels to affected communities to carry out training on simple but practical techniques that can be used to increase food production. Examples of past training have included
how to safely collect, process and use human urine as organic fertilizer;
how to raise maggots as animal feed for pigs, poultry and fish;
how to make hydroponics systems using local materials found in their villages; and
how to construct solar dryers from local materials which can be used to preserve food post harvest.
Since the start of 2020, we have trained 109 small scale farmers in four communities.
