SDIA is committed to providing people with the skills, knowledge and opportunities needed to support themselves and their communities effectively. We help to mobilize communities to develop new or existing income streams that work harmoniously with the natural environment.
We partner with initiatives that:
- Teach people the language, technical and managerial skills needed to develop new enterprises or gain employment.
- Offer financial support, such as credits, to small businesses.
- Facilitate planning and cooperation between communities and local government agencies that is mutually beneficial.
- Promote food security by teaching people how to grow nutritious food for themselves and their communities.
