Impact Story

We believe sustainable development and transformation are essential to ensuring the creation of well-founded initiatives that empower poor, marginalized and vulnerable people to change their lives and communities. We work to empower them with the tools and knowledge they need that will allow them to overcome the many challenges they face and focus on creating innovative sustainable business initiatives. It is such well-founded initiatives that create jobs and, in turn, ensure a lasting more prosperous society. As the widely-repeated adage has taught us, IYAU will help provide the hook, or access to it, that then empowers and allows the people to fish for themselves.

We have trained 500 small holder farmers in organic agriculture

 A total of 5,00 girls were trained on how to make their own home reusable pads, menstruation through home reusable materials and feminine hygiene and yoga as a non-medical remedy to overcoming  menstrual cramps. These 500 girls played a vital role in the training of their peers within school and their communities.
