Transforming African Agricultural Universities to Meaningfully Contribute to Africa’s Growth and Development (TAGDev)

‘Transforming African Agricultural Universities to Meaningfully Contribute to Africa’s Growth and Development’ (TAGDev) is a partnership program between Mastercard Foundation and the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM). The program is implemented at Egerton University, Kenya and Gulu University, Uganda. This eight year program (2016-2024) seeks to transform African agricultural universities and their graduates to better respond to developmental challenges through enhanced application of science, technology, business and innovation for rural agricultural transformation. The program is focused on transformation at individual, community, institutional, national and regional levels. Its special focus is on agriculture as a massifier of opportunities for youth and as a mechanism to achieve financial independence and moving millions of poor smallholder farmers out of poverty.
