Building Self-Sufficient People
Poverty and hunger are intrinsically linked. To that extent, any action or programme to fight hunger must strike at the heart of poverty. The ZHTF SVG trains youths and adults in vulnerable communities to manage resources sustainably, which enables them to meet livelihood needs and safeguard these resources for future generations.
Our interventions seek to:
Provide incentives to farmers.
Develop and support programmes to equip citizens with job-ready skills and skills that lead to certification and employment.
Implement apprenticeship training programmes.
Champion inter-agency collaboration.
