Building independent families

We play the long game,

Families in many crisis communities worldwide struggle to meet their basic needs due to poverty, conflict, or natural disasters. At Human Concern International (HCI), we empower these communities to become self-sufficient and resilient is essential for sustainable development. One of the key ways we achieve this is by teaching families how to grow their own food and earn a livelihood. 

Through our sustainable development programs, HCI provides training on agricultural techniques such as organic farming and crop diversification. We also offer business skills training such as marketing and financial management. By equipping families with these skills, they can become more self-reliant and generate income for themselves and their communities. 

Growing their own food provides families with a source of nutrition. It helps them save money on purchasing expensive produce from markets. This is especially important in crisis situations where access to food may be limited or disrupted. With proper training, families can learn how to grow crops suitable for the local climate and soil conditions. They can also learn about sustainable farming practices that help preserve the environment and reduce the risks of crop failure. 

In addition to growing their own food, HCI’s programs teach families how to earn a livelihood through small businesses. This could include setting up a market stall selling produce or handicrafts made by community members. Our business skills training helps families learn how to manage finances, market their products effectively, and build strong customer relationships. 

By becoming more self-reliant and generating income for themselves and their communities, families in crisis situations are better equipped to weather future challenges. They can also contribute positively towards the development of their communities by creating jobs for others and supporting local businesses. 

At HCI, we firmly believe that investing in sustainable development programs that empower communities is essential for promoting long-term solutions for reducing poverty and fostering resilience in crisis situations. Working with these communities can create lasting change toward a brighter future for all.
