From the conclusions:

In Kenya, farmer groups that are largely women oriented have been found to examine new ways of delivering extension services and increasing women’s participation in productive agriculture. This is what this chapter focuses on in its assessment of farmer groups, empowerment and the use of mobile phones and radios in agricultural production.

This chapter highlights:

  • the efforts that are being made by different NGOs to better the lives of rural farmers belonging to farmer groups in Uganda using diverse approaches to achieve a similar goal (...)
  • the importance of sending messages about gender to the general agricultural information so as to improve gender relations, achieve more equitable participation of both male and female farmers in decision-making, earnings and control of incomes after marketing produce (...)
  • and also reveals a need to build sustainability within communities in terms of the provision of information technologies to farmers.

The selection for this study of farmer groups whose support from an WOUGNET/KIC had long expired, was deliberate in order to check if it is possible for farmers to maintain the use of technology and organisational infrastructure built by NGOs.
