Economic Development

Our interventions enable parents and the community at large to participate in their own socio-economic development.

Through self-help groups (SHGs) we train parents and the community on savings, loans and setting up businesses. Beyond enabling economic empowerment, the SHGs facilitate the social and political empowerment of the communities.

Most families in the areas where we work depend on agriculture. So to improve the households’ income, we work on improving the communities’ knowledge on climate-smart farming methods and promote smallholder farmers to work together in agri-business. We encourage the formation of farmer’s associations through capacity building in farming techniques, market research, storing and marketing of harvest and the management of the associations.
