The Reaching Agents of Change (RAC) is an initiative aimed at increasing investments and commitment to the dissemination and use of Orange-Fleshed Sweetpotato (OFSP) as a means to combat Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) and food insecurity in Africa. The RAC project targets Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana and Burkina Faso with the following main objectives; 1) Generate new investments by governments, donors, and NGOs to scale up the adoption of OFSP in five target countries; and 2) Building the capacity of national implementing agencies to design and implement technically strong and cost-effective training interventions that drive up-scaling of OFSP. This documents outlines one of the capacity building activities planned under the RAC Project; that is conduct an annual 10-day training course on “Everything you have ever wanted to know about sweetpotato”. This is a Training of Trainers (ToT) course targeting extension staff and other interested people working with the public and private sectors, NGOs, CBOs and farmer groups.
