The Aka'ani Agripreneurship Initiative
We promote environmentally sensitive livelihoods.
The Aka'ani Agripreneurship Initiative empowers women and the youth in the community called “The Oaks”.
By creating a self-sustaining community farm, the women of the village will learn about organic farming and receive business training to sell their home-grown products afterwards. Aka'ani operates three projects in The Oaks, including the training centre, the geranium farm and the cultivation of several vegetable gardens in the village.
At the Training Center, the women will learn about agriculture and how to build their own business.
At the Aka'ani plantation, geraniums will be grown and resold, creating jobs for the women of the village.
In the village spinach, onions, beet and other vegetables are grown, the harvest of which can be sold.
