What makes us different

We understand the cause-effect relationship between various dimensions of poverty. This is the reason why we chose not to work with just one sector, instead use a unique integrated approach. Our approach aims to reduce poverty by tackling social, economic and environmental factors. The interventions used are job creation, access to credit, education, health, livelihood and environment management.
