Talia partnered with NZ Aid in 2016 to implement the “Farming for Progress” project which is implemented based on an economic empowerment model. Under this project, young women in Mashonalalnd Central were mobilised and organised into groups with 15-20 members, that had access to services in the community such as land and water supplies.These groups were used as a vehicle for enterprise formation and members were encouragedto save money together for investment in income generating projects. The major components of the project were:
- Capacity building and training.
- Access to finance.
- Value addition and market linkages.
- The young women also received additional training on Financial Literacy; Life Skills; and
- Menstrual Health and Hygiene.
