Additional grant from Accenture
Building on our success
We are delighted that Accenture has given us further funding to equip farmers with agricultural and management skills in Zambia and Malawi. It will build on the success of our work in conservation agriculture, which was also funded by Accenture. The latest grant brings Accenture’s direct support of us to more than $4.75 million since 2010.
This three-year grant will enable us to further develop our skills training programme, which educates communities in sustainable farming practices. It will help increase the income of more than 12,100 farmers. Since 2010, approximately 6,400 farmers have completed the training programme.
The award is part of Accenture’s global corporate citizenship initiative called “Skills to Succeed.” This scheme plans to equip 500,000 people around the world with the skills they need to get a job or build a business by 2015.
