Reaching Agents of Change Project: Everything you ever wanted to know about sweetpotato

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 is a report of the Year 1 training course on “Everything you have ever wanted to know about sweetpotato”. The course took place from 6th to 17th August at IPU (Instituto Pedagógico do Umbeluzi) in Maputo Province, Mozambique. The report includes a summary of the course implementation experience as well as a comprehensive checklist of all steps needed to set up and implement the course.
