Empowering people to work their way out of poverty, transforming their lives, their children's futures and their communities.
ARII facilitates local economic development by equipping communities and farmer groups with training and support them with agricultural inputs, social and small business loans for sustainable livelihood.
We seek to empower individuals and groups of people by providing these groups with the skills they need to affect change in their own communities.
ARII through inter-agency collaboration provides financial and technical assistance to innovative programmes and strategies developed at the local levels to create equal opportunities for people in disadvantaged communities. This is also directed at achieving efficient and effective management of policy systems for sustainable development of resources and achieving full socio-economic benefits of policies for people in disadvantaged communities.
Our Approach to Poverty Reduction
ARII uses the integrated development solution to poverty alleviation. Our approach takes into account the social, cultural, economic, environmental and geographic realities that contribute to the state of wellbeing the people we serve.
At ARII we believe that the best way to affect sustainable change is to address all of the unique areas that perpetuate poverty. Rather than focus on a single issue like water or education, ARII takes a pragmatic and holistic approach to the interconnected issues of poverty to bring lasting change
ARII promotes collaborative conversation and education amongst all stakeholders including private sector, NGOs and civic organizations. We work with the Development Fund International to integrate micro credit and training and services to its other development programmes to ensure that we are able to deliver sustainable solutions to poverty reduction in Africa.
