Food and nutrition security of smallholder farmers and their households

We strengthen the capacities of individual households to produce sufficient food, while also earning an income from farming. Linked to this, we also build the capacity of producer organizations and other associations so they can support poor households to improve and diversify their production, and have better access to markets, financial services and other inputs. We also contribute to awareness raising and advocacy at promoting healthy and sustainable food and nutrition practices for all household members.

 

Economic empowerment smallholder Farmers and small and medium Enterprises

We support poor farmers and producer organizations to seize economic opportunities to improve and sustain farmers’ livelihood. The Market Systems Development approach is used to facilitate access to productive and marketing resources and achieve more value from agricultural production. Capacity development helps to enhance farmers’ technical and business skills, hence improving productivity as well as the quality of agricultural products and enabling farmers to become better positioned within value chains.

 

Disaster management for resilient and disaster-prepared Communities

We create resilient communities that are adequately prepared for, and can effectively respond to disasters. We pay particular attention to integrating disaster risk reduction and resilience strategies in our food security, economic empowerment and humanitarian programs, at both community and business levels. Ongoing investments in skills and capacities are essential for empowering communities in the long term

Functional Literacy, Numeracy, & Health Classes

For millions of children and their families around the world, missing out on an education is one of the most devastating effects of poverty. It quickly becomes a cycle – those whose families are poor miss out, and in turn, they have fewer opportunities to earn an income later in life. Breaking the cycle is incredibly effective in changing the course of a person’s life. Indeed, achieving a basic education is a key step toward fullness of life – unlocking a world of other opportunities.

Vision TERUDO’s approach is to support community-based initiatives, whereby local people are engaged in running and participating in their own Formal and informal education programs. These come in many shapes and sizes, including pre-school classes in slums, training for teachers in remote villages, Equipping schools with desks and scholastic materials, conducting research and tailoring training on vocational skills for young women in informal settings and school classroom for those typically excluded from formal education opportunities, like women, girls and pre-school children. Rather than being run by specialized ‘children’s charities’ or focused exclusively on women’s rights, we incorporate functional education as part of a holistic program, incorporating income generation, savings and loans, and food and nutrition into our education programs.

Training sets people up not only for a job, but for the life skills they need to work to overcome poverty
