Update for I-Go Africa Kenya

After his studies in the United States and a 16-year long career in corporate America, Kenyan-American Mr. Hilary Akhaabi, Ph.D, decided to return to his motherland to embark on a new journey, in pursuit of his dream to achieve food security in Kenya.

He identified local talent who share the same vision and possess credentials in trade policy, as well as experience in regional and global trade. Together, they incorporated Indigenous Go Africa Limited (I-Go Africa) a Kenyan based affiliate of Go Africa LLC and began operations in 2021 specializing in rice production.

I-Go Africa’s goal is to offer a sustainable agriculture model through value addition while empowering women and youth among other marginalized groups

Go Africa Partners with Hello Tractor to Digitize Agricultural Production in Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya – October 31, 2021

Sustainable agriculture is largely driven by interconnected systems across the value chain.  To this end, Go Africa Global announces its newly formed partnership with Hello Tractor, an AgTech company that connects tractor owners to smallholder farmers in need of tractor services. Both companies have come together to leverage their synergies to put forward solutions that will digitize agricultural production in Kenya.

We are thrilled for the opportunity to form yet another strategic partnership that will bring about a boost in the productivity levels of smallholder farmers across Kenya,” said Jehiel Oliver, CEO & Founder, Hello Tractor. “We’re confident that this partnership will yield positive results within Kenya’s agricultural sector, hereby supporting the fight against hunger and enhancing global food security.”

Indigenous Go Africa (I-Go Africa) led by Hilary Akhaabi, PhD, is pioneering rice production in Kenya by providing mechanized services to farmers in the Bunyala Rice Scheme. I-Go Africa has entered into partnerships with Cooperative societies within the Bunyala Rice Scheme to provide mechanization services with the fleet of tractors and harvesters it owns. The aim is to set off and kick-start truly mechanized agricultural production which in turn will result in increased productivity and production of rice within the scheme. Mechanization of agricultural production is part of the larger initiative of I-Go Africa; as it intends to purchase the rice paddy and provide value addition and package rice for sale. Once completed, we anticipate increasing production 6x from current levels resulting in USD 3.0M in total sales annually.
