The SME sector in the country has been rapidly growing since the 2000’s. The impact of the sector cannot be ignored as many small business in this sector create employment, especially for the youth. At Ustadi, we invest in the sector that is not only preferred by the youth but also one that has shown great potential when it comes to changing lives today and in the future.
The nature of our programs aims to boost productivity and yields through empowering the farmers with the necessary education, information, tools and training in areas we have assessed and identified as having potential for improvement. We work close with farmers to ensure that the information is as practical as possible.
Poor sanitation and the shortage of clean water has been a paramount issue in the country, especially parts of the coastal region. Ustadi has made it a paramount priority to ensure the sensitization of the locals on the need of hygiene observation, ensure the availability of clean water and proper health guidelines are followed to ensure quality health of the locals.
