Summary

The Family Teams program is a gender-inclusive approach that encourages male and female family heads to work together as a family team and to collaboratively plan the further development of their agricultural and family activities.

The three modules are:

1) Working as a family team for family goals; 

2) Planning your family farm as a family team; and

3) Communicating and decision-making as a family team. The Family Teams program was complemented by brokered training in the areas of sustainable livelihoods, business and financial literacy, and agricultural production development relevant to each area.
