Through a decade of research with 2000 smallholder families, the ASLP Dairy project team demonstrated the effectiveness of the ‘Whole Family Extension Approach’ (WFEA). This involved the development and testing of a suite of extension modules and “train the trainer” packages. In a follow-on project, the team is researching how effective the extension staff in government services, NGOs and the private sector can be in applying this material to scale out the WFEA approach. These multi-media resources in Urdu and Sindhi are available here.
