We deliver social impact projects and provide business support to smallholder producer groups. We believe that strong and well-managed businesses create employment opportunities and increase the income of producers and workers, resulting in an improvement in their quality of life.
Working in partnership with local organisations, we implement projects that aim to:
- Support the development of sustainable income-generating enterprises to improve livelihoods and contribute towards a reduction in poverty with a focus on empowering women and young people.
- Increase the business and agricultural skills of producers and artisans to improve the quality and quantity of their product and increase their resilience to climate change.
- Strengthen the resilience and sustainability of co-operatives, which support thousands of farmers and artisans.
Over the past year, we delivered 12 projects in Africa and Latin America, which supported the development of innovative initiatives to generate vital income for rural communities. This work aimed to strengthen the climate resilience of producers, as well as creating income generating opportunities for women, young people and established enterprises.
Details of the projects which ran during the year can be found here.
