Economic Empowerment

AIRD embraces a comprehensive and integrative approach to promoting entrepreneurship development and has adopted a two-fold approach that involves training and business development support services (BDSS).

  • The entrepreneurship training addresses unemployment and poverty by supporting the creation and expansion of business enterprises. The training seeks to change the thinking of young women and men from being job seekers to job creators, besides also stimulating innovation and creative and nurturing the same to real businesses. With idleness and hopelessenes addressed, benefiting youth become more focused, engaged and less vulnerable to missuse by politcians, peaceful citizens and also desist from engaging in crime.
  • The BDSS is designed to equip the entrepreneurs with skills in management and leadership, integration of ICT platforms in business, product value addition, value chain development, quality assurance and market linkages.

Civil Society Strengthening Program (CSSP)

The program focuses on two components in the civil society sector. The first component involves research that will help assess competencies of civil society organizations (CSOs) and support their development. Secondly, AiRD will support government policy to encourage participation between communities and local government by underpinning that policy with mutual education, mutual training and encouraging mutual creative problem solving for communities, encouraging wide and multi-input approaches and advocacy for adapting policies and legislations that facilitate development at the county/sub-national level.
