Women-led Business Associations
These associations are comprised of over 200 women that run three retail shops, a tailoring business, a livestock rearing project, a timber forestry project and a micro finance institution. Profits from the association are invested in growth opportunities, community development projects, and to provide a safety net to meet the extraordinary needs of association members. The associations also coach and train other associations in neighboring villages with best practices for growth and development.
Our initial vision was to provide deworming protocols to 43,964 students in 110 primary schools.
The cow project continues to prosper and the number of cows increases each year.
