(Centre d’Expérimentation et de Formation Agricole – The Center for Experimentation and Training in Agriculture)
CEFA conducts agricultural research and extension relevant to small farmers who are food insecure. The trials new varieties of staple crops, vegetables, beans, fruits, animal husbandry, and fish culture in order to determine their suitability to local conditions. They introduce successful varieties to communities via farmer cooperatives and train farmers in sustainable farming techniques, animal rearing, and improved oil palm production and reach others via farmer-to-farmer extension throughout the large, under-served country.
CEFA’s work is supported by Covenant World Relief/ Growing Hope Globally and assisted by Covenant Missionaries Roy & Aleta Danforth.
