Project Context
Since mid-2012, Oxfam Tanzania signed memorandum of understanding with her counterpart Oxfam Intermón to implement a project called Optimizing income of Local chicken and sunflower smallholder producers in 10 wards of Dodoma and Morogoro regions. Subsequently, at implementation level, Oxfam signed agreement with four community institutions namely UMADEP, WOPATA, INADES and SEDIT with the direct execution of the project based on the agreed timeline and Objectives.Sokoine University of Agriculture was also involved in capacity building of the farmers. The Optimizing income of Local chicken and sunflower smallholder producers in 10[1] wards of Dodoma and Morogoro regions project was financed by La Caxia Foundation through Oxfam with implementation starting at the end of 2012.
This project which is also known as the OCHISUN project- aims at contributing to poverty reduction of small scale men and women producers and its overall goal is to improve the household  income of the rural communities through the production of eggs,chicken,sunflower and through improvement of  their financial and organizational capacities.
The focus of the project has been to improve productivity of agricultural activities; adding value to agricultural produce; improving access to markets and strengthening of farmers’ organisation so that they can better determine and have control of their development.
The project has been implemented in Kilosa, Kongwa and Chamwino districts. The local implementing organisations are, UMADEP (covering Kitete and Msowero wards in Kilosa) working on the poultry value chain, WOPATA (covering Kimamba and Rudewa wards in Kilosa district) working on the poultry value chain. On the other hand INADES has been working in 5 wards covering within Chamwino and Kongwa districts and working on sunflower and poultry value chains. SEDIT is a support partner and works with the communities in the three project districts to form and strengthen village community savings and credit groups-VICOBA. With exception of SEDIT all the remaining partners had worked with Oxfam before and they generally had an experience ranging between 10-20 years at the time of signing the contract to implement the project.
