The Junior Programme aims to contribute to the development of a new generation of young people who, following their Junior Expert experience, will commit to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). During their field experience, the focus is on developing competences, innovation, contact with the local reality and networking. This way, our Junior Experts can professionally contribute to the project/programme to which they are assigned; and at the same time, they acquire the necessary competences and expertise to actively contribute to the SDGs.
The Junior Experts work at least 1 and at most 2 years in a project of Enabel or of one of the Non-governmental Actors (NGA) that are affiliated with the Junior Programme. Please go to our website to discover the list of the affiliated NGAs.
Despite East Africa and Congo DRC not being known for cocoa production, the sector has proved to perform well in the region over the years .The region has favourable climatic conditions for cocoa production. Ugandan cocoa has a unique and desirable cocoa flavour profile which provides an interesting niche market that Uganda is serving,. However, Ugandan cocoa farmers currently achieve very low productivity rates. Most of the cocoa trees are between 30-80 years old and are poorly maintained.
Rikolto Uganda hopes to affect change in three domains:
- Cocoa is produced in an environmental, social and economic al responsible way. This leads to increased production of healthy and nutritious food as part of the cocoa producing landscapes (sustainable food production)
- Markets for cocoa are fully inclusive for smallholder producers, the youth and women (inclusive markets).
- An enabling environment that creates good public and private policies and practices for a sustainable cocoa sector (enabling environment).
Main beneficiairies of the project will be smallholder farmers, farmer cooperatives, chocolate companies, financial institutions, local and national governments and civil society organisations promoting agroforestry practices.
The job consists of helping Rikolto Uganda kickstart its ambitions to start working on a cocoa program in Western-Uganda, map stakeholders, identify business and fundraising opportunities and pilot first interventions to support cocoa farmers in the region.
