•We help to facilitate the development of micro-enterprises (eg. agriculture, agribusiness) through the provision of start-up finance, materials (e.g. goats, poultry, mills) and business training.
•We provide training on proposal writing, fundraising and marketing, connecting groups with suitable markets for their produce and skills.
•We expand and extend project management skills and entrepreneurship through the provision of training in financial resource management and the establishment of revolving community funds.
•We also identify and engage other sources of long-term funding and support and we train community groups in how to access funds and grants to the best effect and with greatest relevance and benefit to the community.

“My son Jason participated in the The Gen Foundation volunteer program and still wears the Volunteer recognition badge he was given around the house. When we visited The Gen Foundation as a family, Jason spouts all sorts of knowledge about community development, nature and the cultural exchange experience. It’s amazing what they are able to host our children!”
