Community Focus Groups

This is a  coalition of the student farmers, the NYSC ICT Volunteer Group and cooperative farmers in communities. Focus groups can promote agricultural extension by sharing experiences and communicating these to government extension and policy implementation bodies, via the internet. A network of focus groups through the NYSC ICT initiative will also facilitate market information.

This can be easily done through recording the meetings and making the notes available through for instance Google Docs. At the focus groups, each farmer may find the solution to a challenge from another farmer.  

Farmers can also have some form of online social networking group to which they all belong where they can easily connect, share challenges and find solutions. This provides a means for networking.
