The FLP (Formation des Leaders Paysans) project started in Burkina Faso in September 2017. The objective is to co-construct with the Producer Organizations (FOs) accompanied by Fert the training of farmer leaders on the basis of their needs. Since then, several activities have been carried out ranging from the diagnosis of producers’ needs in terms of support to the actual training of elected representatives/leaders of the FOs, through steering committees (Fert-FO) and the development and experimentation of several training modules: communication and information, cooperative spirit, OHADA law and specific training of secretaries and treasurers of the FOs.
Several short films of testimonies of farmers’ leaders have been made retracing the life paths of these leaders and addressing different themes. They will be used to animate debates during the next training sessions for leaders.
