The HiH enterprise development model is premised on the need to create sustainable income generating activities, through addressing four major challenges facing many small-scale farmers/entrepreneurs. The Hand in Hand approach sees job creation as a highly effective development tool, where micro-entrepreneurs are key drivers for economic growth and poverty reduction. The model supports job creation along the following steps:-
The ultimate objective of the HiH Eastern Africa Enterprise Development for Rural Families programme is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and economic gender disparity in Kenya. This will be achieved by a combination of measures, that taken together break down barriers and unlock the entrepreneurial potential of programme participants, giving them tools that enable them to access growing markets and thereby increase their incomes.
HiH Eastern Africa has mainstreamed the Government’s focus on the Job creation and strives to participate in the Government’s Agenda of job creation. This is achieved through Social mobilization and enterprise training to the communities to help them unleash their entrepreneurial talents and potential. This will help improve incomes and food sufficiency and subsequently alleviate poverty.
We take a unique approach in alleviating poverty in Eastern Africa. We use key strategies that ensure that we form solid synergies with our partners and members; Outreach Programs, Partnerships, Collaborations and Networking.
