The Organic Alternative for Africa (TOFA) aims to sensitize governmental decision makers in Africa to the benefits of organic alternatives for sustainable development. These benefits are manifold: social and economic, for rural and urban communities.
Taking a continental approach to advocating for Organic Agriculture, this campaign strengthens the African (Ecological) Organic Movement and empowers Africans, especially smallholder family farmers, pastoralists, women and youth in both rural and urban communities, by creating new opportunities for organic development in the region.
