Course development horticulture, dairy and value chain management

Kenya

Project description
In November 2011, Q-Point started a four-year Nuffic project in Kenya “Capacity building for improvement dairy and horticulture programs to meet the requirements of the labor market and to contribute to food security and the commercialization of the sector in Kenya” with Bukura College (BAC).

So far two revised programs were approved; both took off in September 2013. Capacity building activities have taken place in various ways leading to staff development, academic leadership skill enhancement, quality management improvements (ISO certification), gender mainstreaming efforts within the college service delivery and collaborative structures with private and public sector stakeholders in the horticulture and dairy sector.
