Our programs are delivered within the framework of a Farming Family Development Roadmap. Through a structured process we aim to initially inspire farming families to consider new ways of doing things, introducing business concepts through free introductory programs and facilitating different conversations though AgFutures, a growing network of people seeking to contribute to the development of the agriculture sector in Papua New Guinea.
Secondly, we seek to introduce new concepts and practice, covering a range of important topics across business management, marketing and financial management. Topics are graduated through various levels as outline below:
Finally, our programs take purposeful action and aim to transform new skills and knowledge into ongoing behaviour. Our Market garden investment fund assists groups to invest and develop a community garden, applying their new knowledge and giving them confidence to transform their own family gardens to a small business. The graduate mentoring program will be an opportunity for past participants of AgBook programs to give back to their communities by supporting the implementation of business plans.
