Our Focus Areas
Our model is uniquely holistic and participatory, helping rural poor families sustainably change their lives and build a better future for generations to come. We have a more than 30 year track record, deep expertise and strategic partnerships that help families overcome the stranglehold of poverty through coordinated work in five key areas:
Land is the foundation of our approach to ending poverty. We help the rural poor gain access to land and launch agriculturally-based businesses, empowering families to acquire productive assets and generate income.
Highly-skilled agronomists provide families with the technical expertise, agricultural inputs and market information needed to successfully cultivate, harvest and sell cash crops.
Human development officers provide emotional, psychological and spiritual support while fostering community ownership of preventative healthcare, good nutrition and proper sanitation and hygiene.
Credit officers customize financial products to meet the cash flow and seasonal needs of the families to ensure business success and to teach basic financial literacy like budgeting, saving and investing.
Our educational and adult training programs focus on lifting an entire family out of poverty through knowledge. Education for children reduces poverty, ends wasted potential, and ensures a stronger future for the next generation.
