Welcome to Kenya Institute of Organic Farming (KIOF)

The Kenya Institute of Organic Farming (KIOF) is a non-governmental organization operating throughout Kenya and the Eastern Africa region. It is not operated for profit or other commercial purposes, but exists solely for the benefit of the public at large by promoting rural development and education in organic agriculture and related marketing services. The Institute is located in Juja town on the ultramodern Nairobi-Thika Superhighway.

KIOF was officially established in 1986 to train and promote organic farming methods, mainly among smallholder Kenyan farmers. Initial programmes carried out in the former Central and Eastern Provinces of Kenya proved successful as they encouraged low-cost farming.

As a result, organic farming became exceedingly popular, leading to rising demand for general information and training on organic agriculture from all over East Africa. Currently, KIOF promotes practical training to farmer groups, KCSE level students, and other rural youth. Our mission is to be a lead institution for the universal adoption of organic agriculture.

KIOF is a pioneer and leader in organic agriculture, committed to seeing global adoption of organic agriculture through training in organic practices, processing of organic pesticides, manufacturing of biomedicine, and marketing of both fresh and dried organic produce and livestock.

The Year 2020 Club

There was a song in the 1970s/80s about the "year 2525". The song made predictions about how the world would be like in the year 2525. Kenya has been similarly curious about what the year 2030 will be like. Around 15 years ago, a Government program was set up to formulate goals that could be achieved by the year 2030. Now, the year 2020 holds a unique fascination with its repeated numbers. It will be over 100 years before 2121 comes along. The Year 2020 Club Membership aims to celebrate this unique year and bring people together.

The Year 2020

The year 2020 is a special year with its repeated numbers. It is a rare occurrence that won't happen again for over a hundred years. The Year 2020 Club aims to celebrate this uniqueness and bring people together to commemorate various events and milestones.

The Year 2020 Club Membership

The Year 2020 Club Membership encourages people whose main celebrations fall on the 2nd or 20th of each month of 2020 to join. This includes those celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other significant events on these dates. The club will have two main groups - The 02 Year 2020 Group and The 20 Year 2020 Group, based on the date of celebration.

Members of The Year 2020 Club can celebrate various anniversaries, milestones, and significant life events that occurred on the 2nd or 20th of any month in previous years. The club aims to create a sense of community and celebrate together during the unique year of 2020.

Benefits of Organic Farming Training and Follow-up for Groups

At KIOF, we maintain contact with various groups through regular magazines, for instance, What’s About, and through inviting the groups to attend Farmers day in November/December of every year. The institute is also promoting the marketing of organic produce and the certification process.

How to Apply for the Farmers Training Course

Farmers or persons interested in organic farming courses should form a group of at least 20 farmers within their community. They should look for convenient places within their village for a venue. They should then collect training fees and inform KIOF. During the week of the training, the group should organize their own meals and training materials.
