Agriculture Sector

Our team first launched the SolarSPELL Agriculture Library in Zimbabwe with Foundations for Farming. We led a train-the-trainer workshop for thirteen of their Harare-based training staff in March 2023. This training also included a new session on information literacy for agriculture, during which participants got to practice using the library to try to answer a question they anticipated receiving in the field.
