The key elements of our work have developed from our own experience and the local knowledge of the communities we work with, ensuring they have the best opportunity to build long-lasting change and a better future for their families.
We help families grow more food
We support and encourage families to innovate, using their own resources more productively, trying new seeds, making compost and diversifying their crops.
This means they can produce a variety of nutritious foods to eat throughout the year so that they never go hungry and to earn an income by selling the excess.

We help families earn more income
We provide people with training and support to start village saving and loan schemes, so they can borrow a little capital, and have the knowledge and skills to start a small business.
This allows them to sell their surplus vegetables or eggs or start a small local shop which enables them to become more self-reliant and provide a better future for their family.

We help communities strengthen their voice
We empower people so that they have the confidence to speak out and take a stand on issues that affect them, such as accessing better healthcare for their children or clean water for their village. This in turn enables them to demand what is rightfully theirs.
