What we do
Skills and Enterprise Development
The program's primary goal is to enhance the economic productivity of disadvantaged women and youth-led micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) through various interventions. These interventions include skills development, wealth creation, and promoting resilience and adaptation. To achieve this, the program provides a comprehensive range of support to disadvantaged women and youth. This support includes technical skills training, soft skills development, entrepreneurship knowledge, and assistance with market and financial linkages. By equipping them with these capacities, the program aims to enhance their ability to generate income, create employment opportunities, and support sustainable livelihoods.
Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
The programme is premised on an intergrated approach that promotes circular economy in developing capacities of women and youth led SME’s but also invest in technological innovations that contribute to climate resilience. The program operates at the nexus between policy and action for resilience building and innovation within the green and blue economy value chains. Further, the program focuses on renewable energy sub-sector in order to foster economic growth, enhance access, affordability, availability towards food security and job opportunities while conserving the natural ecosystem. The program acknowledges that depletion of the natural ecosystem and the climatic changes not only affect the human livelihoods, but also breeds conflicts arising from unsustainable utilization of the environment and it’s attendant resources.
Peace and Governance
The overall aim of this program is to contribute to the existence and operationalization of governance framework and practices that safeguard justice, equity, rule of law, inclusivity, cohesion and civic participation. Through the program, we engage in policy influencing, as well as facilitate improved civic engagements and access to justice. This program acts as the fulcrum and equilibrium that provides the impetus and lense for supporting the development and implementation of the climate change and SED programs. The program is premised on the philosophy that; all development needs are conflict context, therefore conscious intergration of peace and development through climate change and SED programming is critical. Interventions are entrenched within the governance structure at the community county and national levels since our interventions compliment and support Government development agenda.
