Call for Graduate Agro-Entrepreneurs and Agro-Enterprises

It is the pleasure for Tanzania Graduate farmers to continue represent and advocate for Proffessional Agribusiness enterprises in Tanzania.

Our movement was geared towards mind transformation of University students and Youngsters to take the rising and hidden Agricultural investment opportunities and take control of them.

“Modern Small and Medium Agri enterprieses” which is  important and easy for realising the statements made by TGFA chairman Mr. Stephano Kingazi

“Maping, Credibility, public involvement in presence of Graduate farmers is crucial. So I call upon Graduate Agro-entrepreneurs of level beyond small holders to come and join our hands so we can address challenges and draw a road map towards sustainable environment for Agribusiness sector in Tanzania by including Youths, Youngsters and Learning curriculums In a most sustainable way.

“agriculture and Economic Transformation in Tanzania is solely depends on synergy between small holder, middle level as professionals together with upper level or scale which are plantations, processors and large plant owners to join hands in the spirit of self help and seek support from among themselves in cooperation approaches”. The missing link between and among themselves, as farmers and professional or Professional with professionals.”


About Graduate Farmers

TGFA is a civil society organization whose membership base constitute highly learned, capable, experienced and aspirants of becoming commercial farmers in Tanzania. Membership also comprises agricultural consultants (researchers) and retired people from the civil service sectors who deal with agriculture and agriculture marketing in general. The major aim of TGFA is to develop, promote, and influence structured business and initiatives that encourages and motivate youth especially graduates to tap in profitable agriculture value chains in both rural and urban areas in Tanzania with defined rules and regulations. TGFA also aimed at bringing dialogues for advocating improvement of the policy and enabling business environment in the country economy, strengthen information dissemination, technology and innovation, agribusiness development skills, business linkages and reduce constraints along the sector value chain. The word ‘graduate’, as it appears on the title, does not strictly mean that one has to have university degree, rather a catch word that connotes a paradigm shift in thinking, especially in the developing countries, that farming is largely for the unprivileged, most less educated and poor people in rural areas towards a new thinking that farming can only be meaningful and actual backbone of the economy if and only if the highly learned, capable (in terms of finances and other resources) and inspired individuals in urban areas embark into it even as part-timers.
