If your aid program enhances rural enterprises, you are teaching people fishing. Any other support, is giving a fish only!

Rural communities will need to get proper support from development programs. While, education, health, infrastructure and other programs are important, rural enterprise development is a key development intervention. The biggest help you can do to somebody is to help him sell his/her service/product. Help him/her reach markets.

We come up with this course to address the “research-based” needs of development workers and managers for enterprise development planning and management. This comprehensive training workshop will ensure the participants gain a change in their performance and not only some useful information.
