USAID is the lead US Government agency that works to end extreme poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realise their potential. Through this it promotes a path to self-reliance and resilience. USAID funds the nutrition, agriculture and economic development Yaajeende programme in Senegal. Yaajeende is recognised in international development circles for its unique ability to successfully integrate nutrition development with agricultural programmes on a large scale.
We have been working with Yaajeende since 2014 to grow a key part of the programme and develop it as a social enterprise that will generate its own income. The ultimate vision is to replicate the impact of CuliVert across Senegal and Africa, improving the health and financial livelihoods of millions.
