Our program has been locally developed to address the barriers that keep communities in poverty. We focus resources and access towards achieving durable outcomes.

Our goal is to see our clients transition to commercial farming, diversify income, and earn enough money to ensure that their entire family lives above the extreme poverty line. 

Our two-year program provides intensive training in:

  • Agriculture 
  • Business
  • Mental and physical health
  • Community wellness
  • Literacy

We optimize these trainings through:

  • One-on-one business mentorship
  • Individualized counseling 
  • Low cost-financing
  • Market linkage

Our teams (agronomist, business mentor, and counselor) partner with groups of 30 households and work alongside them one day a week for the entire program. This year we are working with 1,200 families and their 8,000+ household members. 

After two years, groups transition into farming cooperatives and extend membership to others in their communities. Cooperatives foster durable outcomes and catalytic impact: we’ve reached over 18,000 people since 2018.  

Next week we’ll take a look at the foundational strategies behind our success.
