ZVIKOMBORERO Farms School of Farming Excellence
PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE ON FARMING BUSINESS
To bridge the gap between what colleges are training and what is happening in society, Zvikomborero School of Farming Excellence has come up with a “fit for purpose” livestock training that incorporates innovation and industrialisation as a drive towards vision 2030.
Objectives of the training school
- There is a gap in knowledge, skills and poor attitude in goat production, marketing, and processing.
- To equip the producers with appropriate skills for mitigating and adapting to effects and challenges posed by climate change
- The processors and consumers of goats along the value chain require specific product characteristics and quality.
- To develop skills in the producer to have a strong and sustainable competitive edge against other regional producers who have been in the market for long.
The centre has adopted a participatory and experiential learning approach. This includes theoretical and practical skills. The courses are designed to cater for operatives and strategists at junior, senior and advanced Levels.
