The program provides technical assistance, training, research, product development, market linkages and advocacy services. The program envisions a time in the near future when Tanzanian small holder farmers, entrepreneurs and consumers benefit in terms of raw materials, income, health, environmental enhancement and affordable products from Jatropha curcas. The overall goal is to promote the planting and exploitation of the multiuser specie for economic energy and environmental benefit of rural producers and consumers everywhere while promoting all forms of community services for the purpose of socio-economic development.
- Major Responsibilities
The program needs volunteers to help improve on weak areas within the organization and learn from each other by sharing experiences and knowledge of benefits of Jatropha growing within the smallholder farming communities. Volunteers are required to help in training, office administration, field visits, proposal writing and research works. They can also participate in farmer's demonstrations equipment and product testing.
