About the project

AgriConnect Bauchi is an inclusive initiative aimed at empowering farmers in Bauchi Local Government with digital literacy skills, access to technology, and smartphones to enhance agricultural productivity and market opportunities. Recognizing that a large number of farmers have never used the internet, the project will provide comprehensive training sessions on basic digital skills and internet usage, in addition to training on utilizing digital platforms and Google Lens for disease detection. By equipping farmers with smartphones and the necessary skills, AgriConnect Bauchi aims to bridge the digital divide, promote inclusion, and contribute to the socio-economic development of the region.

Updates

Week 1 of the project has started. This week, the farmers will get an introduction to digital literacy, learn the basics of computers, and get an introduction to software.
