Society for Agropreneurship and Agribusiness (SOFAAG) is a non-government and non-profit organisation. It an affiliate of Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs, devoted to the empowerment of existing and potential farmers in Nigeria through training, mentorship, networking and partnership.
SOFAAG is one of the largest networks of agriculture and allied sector professionals in Nigeria and acts as a bridge between this network of Nigerian rural communities and other stakeholders, including governments, large development organisations and corporate entities, through large-scale field implementation projects with integrated deployment of technology.
We work for enhancing livelihood opportunities for the rural poor through interventions in sustainable agriculture and livestock development, access to water and sanitation, skills development and women empowerment. Through our targeted interventions for economic and environmental sustainability through farmer aggregation, knowledge empowerment and market linkages, we contribute towards food security and rural economic development.
SOFAAG was established by a group of agriculture and management professionals who are members of Institute of Classic Entrepreneurs (INCENT), with the belief that capacity building of small and marginal farmers' agricultural practices would help enhance their livelihoods and income, and thereby result in better quality of life for rural communities. SOFAAG's focuses on farmers' technical training through on-field and ICT-based interventions for agriculture development. Based on extensive learning on the field, SOFAAG's work includes integrated farming, farmer aggregation and market linkages into a comprehensive sustainable rural livelihoods approach..
We shall engage directly with small and marginal farmers and their families, strengthening their food and nutrition security, through interventions on sustainable agriculture with a focus on yield improvement, agribusiness, and human development. We shall work for women empowerment through the self-help group approach in our project locations. Environmental sustainability is an intrinsic element in our work through initiatives in natural resource management, soil fertility management, conserving bio-diversity, vermin-composting and sanitation.
