The first Icon on the right highlights the core-farmer network, which consists of approximately 20,000 farmers with whom SAT has established long-term relationships. These farmers have been visited by SAT in Farmer Field Schools and received intensive training on agroecology. This network forms the foundation for knowledge dissemination and collaboration.
The second icon illustrates the iterative process of Research, Refine, and Incubate. SAT conducts research activities within the core farmer network, leveraging the knowledge and experience gained. The organization refines this knowledge and disseminates it to farmers, who then serve as incubators, sharing their knowledge and expertise with their peers in a farmer-to-farmer approach.
All gained knowledge and experience is scaled through SAT's diverse approaches see next step.
The third icon outlines the scaling tools employed by SAT within the Innovation Accelerator. These tools include SAT Social Business, Farmer Training Centre (FTC), the Farmer Magazine Mkulima Mbunifu, and Projects & Services.
The fourth icons highlights the stakeholders reached by the Innovation Accelerator. Farmers, consumers, NGOs, companies, and the public sector all play a vital role in SAT's efforts. The Innovation Accelerator engages with more than 100,000 farmers and stakeholders annually, acting as a significant catalyst for the adoption of agroecological farming practices not only in Tanzania but also beyond its borders.
