social care

Our outreach programmes deliver preventative workshops on health and wellbeing, social care, sex education, grassroots sexually transmitted infections, female genital mutilation and teenage pregnancies.
With heartfelt dedication, our outreach programs tirelessly deliver workshops aimed at preventing health issues, promoting well-being, and providing crucial social care support. We approach sensitive topics like sex education with empathy, and we're committed to eradicating harmful practices like female genital mutilation. Together, we strive to empower communities and protect the vulnerable, fostering a brighter, healthier future for all.

SUSTAINABILITY

Ensuring sustainability is vital for any agricultural project to thrive. We understand the harmony between commercial goals and ethical principles, leading us to foster a culture of ethics in all our endeavours.
We're dedicated to reaching our project goals and have initiated a program to utilize the 25 acres of land surrounding the Yonibana hospital. Our team has introduced various crop varieties, enriching the agricultural diversity of the area.

Additionally, we have access to more agricultural land near the hospital for future crop expansion, which will also generate employment opportunities for local communities.
