We are a not-for-profit organization supporting agrarian reform beneficiaries and their cooperatives.

We improve the lives of smallholder farming households by promoting access to productive resources and enabling them to make informed decisions about environment-friendly, non-discriminatory and sustainable livelihoods.
We believe in people-centred development and a faith that promotes justice, peace, and integrity to all people.
