Together with our partners, TechnoServe is helping to grow strong markets that create opportunities for enterprising people in the developing world.

Creating Support Systems for Emerging Farmers

TechnoServe’s effort to sustainably improve the livelihood of an increasing number of emerging black farmers in SA requires interventions to ensure our programs are able to reach scale. In this program, we have partnered with Ford Foundation to address three fundamental shortcomings that limit scale.


Promoting Rural and Eco-Tourism

In 2003, with support from the Ford Foundation, TechnoServe began identifying opportunities in the tourism sector. Our tourism industry strategic plan was developed by a pro-bono McKinsey & Company team, who identified eco-tourism as the segment with significant growth potential and where TechnoServe’s expertise could add the most value.
