Our three program pillars
Women and youth play a very important role in poverty eradication and improving the level of living. Since the overall level of education attainment among rural women and youth is low, their contribution is often limited to unskilled and manual work.
We train and impart business & managerial skills to women and youth needed to start and run a profitable farm and non-farm businesses.
We do research for evidence based interventions. We provide development and welfare support services including the expanded social package that influences rural underserved communities to improve among others services; community social and emotional support, and linkage to community agribusiness resources; Access to Safe Water for production, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Create ICT innovations for inclusiveness in agribusiness.
