Improving small-scale farmer’s economic well-being requires more than a “cash crop yield productivity” approach.  This explains why FarmStrong Foundation programs are “rural economy” based. While being environmentally conscious, they are designed to maximize farmer’s net economic income, social welfare and strengthen the local economy.

FarmStrong Foundation initiatives can include components such as labor intensive activity reduction through improved infrastructures, local business development through micro-financing, health prevention programs, reducing sickness and work incapacity, administrative regularisation procedures to ensure children can attend school, local waste management programs and water conservation with a watershed resource management approach, and much more.

As a result, the traditional components focusing on the improvement of sustainable agricultural production are enhanced with systematic tailored social, gender, health, water & food security, nutrition, energy and broader environmental management components.
