a world where africans are poverty free and enjoying the full benefits of sustainable livelihoods.
to alleviate poverty by strenthening the capacity of communities to attain sustainable livelihoods
Africa 2000 Network (A2N) is a regional network of 6 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from different countries in Africa working together to contribute to poverty eradication through sustainable and equitable development. A2N works with rural communities through various interventions with a major focus on improving household income and food security through the promotion of sustainable agriculture. Our approach involves the use of Participatory Development Management, which aims to deepen community participation and empower men and women at all levels of local governance to design and implement their own sustainable solutions to economic and environmental problems.
what we do
We focus on supporting smallholder families to practice Sustainable Agriculture by training farmers’ groups in sustainable farming, sharing best practices, and providing extension services. Gender issues in agriculture are addressed to ensure that women benefit from the local economy and also participate in leadership positions in community associations. In order to improve household food security and diversified diets, farmers’ groups are supported with improved technologies to improve on their soil, crop and animal management practices in an ecologically sustainable manner.
We advocate for an effective agriculture sector for improved livelihoods.
agribusiness and markets
We support initiatives and enterprise development that increase household incomes for improved standards of living. We also support the development of farmer associations and village savings groups to empower producers, and for peacebuilding. This helps small producers by increasing their bargaining power, access to finance, influence and marketing potential.
environmental preservation and climate change
A2N supports environmental sustainability and enhances the capacity of smallholder farmers to adapt to climate change.
