We call upon their creativity and encourage courageous leadership. Through training and education, the organisation empowers local villagers to take effective and sustainable action in the areas of health, education, adult literacy, nutrition, improved farming and food security, microfinance, water and sanitation and HIV/AIDS prevention.
