What

We Do

We are a small public benefit non profit organization consisting of rural development practitioners who specialize in participatory learning and action processes, sustainable natural resource management and low external input farming systems.

We focus on rain water harvesting, conservation agriculture, intensive homestead food production, food security, micro finance and enterprise development.

We design and implement rural development programmes and training processes providing learning processes for adults all the way from semi- literate farmers to post graduate university level.

We work in partnership with government and non-government organisations alike. We are sensitive to and mainstream where possible gender, disability and living with HIV/AIDs.
