WaA! prioritizes development of Local Inclusion Agenda

A group of participants during an event to prioritise the development of Local Inclusion Agenda.

Committed to Changing the community, step by step

Athanasie, a woman from the northern part of Burundi, is working in the field. Her family took the opportunity to improve their agricultural production by implementing the inclusive PIP approach in their household as part of the We are Able! programme.
