What We Do


We provide management, technical and financial support to locally-run social enterprise partners. These partners share our mission, and utilize our methodology and programs to assist families and schools living in disadvantaged rural communities to achieve food and income sustainability.


Methodology

We use a repeatable approach that assists people to develop the capacity to navigate a path to sustainability. The path steps are:

  • Access Knowledge
  • Apply Resources
  • Strengthen Health
  • Earn Income
  • Improve Facilities
  • Enhance Education


Programs

We provide ongoing management, mentoring, materials and measurement support for three programs: Grow, Build and Earn.

Grow assists with building and maintaining organic vegetable gardens for homes, schools and market growing.

Build includes facilities like school toilet blocks, and Rent-to-Own homes.

Earn covers mentoring market gardeners, and providing loans for investment in productive assets, construction and Village Community Banks.
