A word from the Chief of Party.
Read about the history and mission of CHAMP's implementing organization.
More than 80 percent of Afghans rely on agriculture to support their families. CHAMP works with Afghans like these by increasing yield and quality and opening up new global markets for six key value chains – pomegranates, apples, almonds, grapes, apricots, and melons.
CHAMP’s value-chain approach starts
with the Afghan farmer, continues with the local trader, and ends with the buyer who
receives high-quality produce. CHAMP’s agribusiness activities grow Afghanistan’s agricultural sector, create jobs, improve livelihoods, and boost the economy.
CHAMP currently works in 6 provinces: Kandahar, Logar, Wardak, Kabul, Parwan and Kapisa.
CHAMP'S HISTORIC ACTIVITIES:
- Establishing new orchards and vineyards and rehabilitating existing ones
- Linking farmers with traders, and traders with international markets
- Improving the performance of new and existing businesses by working along the value chain
- Providing employment opportunities for women
