We've changed a lot since 1988. We no longer send cows from the UK, we source them locally. In fact, providing livestock is just a tiny part of what we do.
We don’t ask communities what they need – we ask what they’ve got. We help them identify and value resources they already have: their land, their families, their communities and capacities. Together, communities build a vision of a better future.
Then, through training in farming, and by tackling social issues such as gender inequality, we enable them to acquire both the hope and the skills to get there. We are well known for delivering distinctive programmes that blend gender equality and social development training, alongside farming systems and business development.
Who we work with
The three pillars to our work
In three out of four households, women and men are now equal partners in making decisions about how to use the family's land, and how to share the workloads.*
97% of farmers believe they can provide enough food and income for their families' needs from their farms.*
By selling surplus farm produce, families' income increases six-fold.*
