• Inclusive Trading Initiative

    The Inclusive Trading Initiative (ITI) Foundation is an initiative with the aim of realizing economic programs in East Africa, aimed at people with the lowest incomes. Our programs aim to create sustainable employment for these people.

    Within the foundation, the focus is on three programs: 1) development of the agricultural sector, 2) development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and 3) strengthening companies with a substantial impact on the local economy and employment.

Agriculture

The agricultural program is designed together with the farming communities. The farmers are trained and supervised on how to develop a future-oriented agricultural company. We focus on cultivation techniques that are climate resistant, increase biodiversity and have a significant impact on the farmer’s income. Our approach works! The costs are less than €200 per farmer to lift them and their families out of poverty. Our goal is to include 1,000 farmers in the program over the next 3 years.

SME

Within the SME development programme, promising young entrepreneurs are trained in developing a well-thought-through business plan. After the plan has been developed, the entrepreneurs are guided in obtaining equipment to further expand their business. This equipment is rented from a dedicated local company, Equip Rwanda Ltd. The costs for training are € 50 per entrepreneur. In the coming years, we want to offer 1,000 entrepreneurs the opportunity to set up or expand their business.
