AGRISUD International

Mission Statement

A small NGO for a great cause: empower communities in
developing countries to achieve a decent living on their land and from their land, through entrepreneurship.

This could be called autonomy, we would rather call it dignity.

Agrisud is a field-based operator, who works with local partners,
and whose concern is on the long term.

We try and help local people, training them on agroecology, best practices
and management.­­­­­

We pay respect to both the human being and the local development.
We mobilize both local know-how and innovation.

As down-to-earth as our action may be, our ambition is high: make it possible for people to become entrepreneurs, in order to build their own destiny. This is our way to embody solidarity.
