Assessment of MORINGA's progress towards achieving the project targets.
This first impact assessment of MORINGA suggests that the project has succeeded in delivering a positive impact towards the targeted communities, with plenty of room for improvement, especially in terms of scaling up and properly monitoring the intervention.
It concludes that:
- The project has successfully increased household income for farming families using the World Vision’s Inclusive Market Systems Development (iMSD) approach.
- Overall, most project partners have facilitated agricultural information to the farmers and provided a supporting function on the ground that has been identified in each project.
- Project success in facilitating market linkages with private sector partnerships resulted in the adoption of business models and improved agricultural practices by at least 987 farmers. However, the adoption of Generally Accepted Practices (GAP) and/or good post-handling practices are still lacking in certain cases.
- The project is successfully working with the private sector in delivering change, with each intervention demonstrating success in different degrees and aspects.
