Economic Empowerment

From fragile families to flourishing villages. That is the intended impact of Help a Child for the communities we work in. Within 5-7 years, we enable these communities to get from A to B. Help a Child does this by:

  • Integrated farm planning (Plan Intégré du Paysan or PIP)
  • Establishment and training of producer groups
  • Training on Climate-Smart Agriculture and Green Curriculum
  • Making a link to value chain development
