Supporting Agricutural Development
In our efforts to make food security a reality in Africa and the fact that Agriculture plays a crucial role in the development of many economies in Africa, AID seeks to not only advocate for farmers but to also solicit support and help them acquire adequate tools and other resources in producing sufficient food for their families, communities, cities and countries in a more sustainable way. In this light, we are currently running a pilot project in Sierra Leone.
Supporting Business Development Services (BDS)
Participants in the BDS program will be presented with tools necessary to transform their ideas into individual or group projects; they will benefit from a “learning-by-doing” approach in which they will be assisted in developing and managing entrepreneurial projects. Graduates will receive assistance with business start-up and/or with placement in internships or jobs with small enterprises. The initial beneficiaries are 250 youths. Of this number, 80 are females, 50 are disabled and the rest males. Most of them who were utilized as ex-combatants in the war have acquired only primary education. They have never been properly re-integrated into their communities after the war.
