Sustainable Lively hoods Programs
This where our Food & Nutrition Programs are initiated to assist socially affected community members to build the economy through self-sustenance. We provide a number of Entrepreneurship Projects which are implemented and initiated by a minimum of 5 people where we coach, mentor and incubate the chosen projects as well as offer assistance for a financial pack application also linking them to financial intuitions for any necessary additional funding. After six months we exit the project but still administer it for the entire existence of the company as after care.
