Center for African Bio-Entrepreneurship (CABE)
The P2 project on climate-sensitive nutrients, undernutrition and malaria has partnered with the Center for African Bio-Entrepreneurship (CABE).
CABE is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 and located in Nairobi, Kenya. CABE was established as a knowledge sharing organization that works to enhance the skills of smallholder farmers, women and youth entrepreneurs in Africa. CABE strives to advance meaningful participation in agriculture and agribusiness activities through entrepreneurship, capacity building, establishing market linkages, access to improved inputs, and developing access to extension and financial services.
CABE and the P2 team jointly implement the home gardening component of the cluster-randomized intervention study in Siaya, Kenya, aiming to improve the status of climate-sensitive nutrients, child undernutrition and malaria. More specifically, CABE implements the training, guidance and follow-up of garden leaders and project beneficiaries in the intervention arm of the study.
