eDairy Training and Extension Modules

SNV Uganda’s The Inclusive Dairy Enterprise project (TIDE) aims to provide dairy farmers and other dairy professionals, with knowledge and skills for enhanced dairy farm management and profitability. To ensure that dairy knowledge is relevant and accessible, TIDE - in collaboration with partners - has developed eDairy modules to support and build the capacity of farmers, extension officers, trainers, input suppliers and service providers.

The Inclusive Dairy Enterprise (TIDE) Phase 2

SNV Netherlands Development Organisation is a not-for-profit international development organization, working in agriculture, renewable energy, and water, sanitation & hygiene. Founded in the Netherlands in 1965, SNV has built a long-term local presence in more than 30 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. SNV’s local and international advisors support communities, businesses and organizations with the tools, knowledge, skills and connections to increase incomes, employment, profitability of farms and SMEs, and/or to gain access to basic services. In doing so SNV seeks to support market-based solutions that are financially and environmentally sustainable and inclusive.

Funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kampala, since October 2015 SNV has implemented the TIDE project in Southwest Uganda that is now in Phase-2 (2020–23). TIDE-1 supported dairy farmers to transition to semi-intensive production through the creation of a commercial input market in knowledge (training, extension), products and technical services, and finance (credit, subsidies and grants). A market was created for input suppliers and service providers by supporting the development and marketing of products to farmers and cooperatives.
