Resource Mobilisation
  • Source grants from Irish Aid, USAID, DfID, CIDA & the European Commission

Close to water supply

67% of the population has sustainable access to water

Possible promotion of trade on the lake

Develop fisheries potential.

In theory

Problem: Finding a marketable crop that could replace it and benefit them at same time.

  • 75% of employment is in the agricultural sector and want to sustain that
  • IFAD is supporting a livelihoods diversification programme introducing new crops for the food chain and as cash crops
  • The food chain crops focus on highly nutritious varieties
  • Measurements of valuation include the % changes in agricultural numbers and data.
health business
Health measurements using data provided elsewhere to hopefully measure the improvements on the other fronts.

All include HIV Rates, Insecticides, fertility rates, child underweights, public health expense, life expectancy, literacy rate, etc.

Problem: valuing a certain part of the claim by your topic.

May use as a total valuation based on collaboration

our formula for 100 success
Total Pop 13.5

Annual Growth 2.2%

Annual Total Pop growth per year =.297

From that 78,000 in tobacco ind.

95% of 78,000 entrance

44% of 78,000 complete level1

25% of 78,000 complete level 2


(44% + 2.2% + 2%)


Our Short Term Goal is only 2% for 5 years with a ambitious total of 10% over 5 years in the completion rates.

Our Formula For 100% Success

Education is often seen as a privilege. It is not. Education is a right. It is the key to a better childhood and a better future for children, their communities and their countries.

It is one of many human rights that poor people are denied every day (ActionAid)
