STAWI has been much involved in community development programs by providing training and facilitation, consultation, advisory, mentoring and coaching sessions as the methodological approach chosen for capacity building. The central focus of this base is to impart knowledge and skills to beneficiaries on Financial Management, Market and Supply Systems as well as the stakeholder’s management. The reason for this alignment is to create trust, collaboration as well as strengthening networking among themselves and to different stakeholders who are directly or indirectly involved in the cycle of their development. Majority of the groups we are serving are engaged in agricultural production, processing and marketing of the products they make. All of the developmental agricultural activities are carried out based on value chain development programs.
It is our pleasure and delight to present to you our 2021/2025 STAWI- Strategic Focus.
