Economic Development Program

Economic Development 

greenhouse usersTo tackle poverty and to build sustainable communities, Namlo works with community members to identify entrepreneurial activities that can not only raise incomes and living standards, but can also contribute to the well-being of the community as a whole. This process harnesses the entrepreneurial spirit, desire for self-improvement and recognition of the inter-relatedness of individuals and communities. This is the key to building resilient communities, and diminishes the risk of developing dependencies on Namlo or other organizations.
