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

Community-Based Livelihoods Development

A five-year partnership with FHI360, funded by the U.S Agency for International Development, provides an integrated approach to community livelihood development. TechnoServe is responsible for the implementation of the economic strengthening and promotional activity initiatives in the program.


Linking Health Outcomes to Income Generation

A two year PACT PEPFAR (President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) funded program has enabled TechnoServe to deliver basic business training through a “train the trainer” and mentorship approach, which is being delivered to organizations supporting vulnerable households and caretakers of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) who are part of the WORTH savings program.


Promoting Food Security and Resilience in Impoverished Areas

Through the European Union, TechnoServe will embark on a program aimed at improving rural food supply, increasing farmer profitability, addressing informal market inefficiencies and promoting rural enterprise. The program will address farming practices for subsistence and staple crops while also promoting crop diversification for income and nutrition.


Supporting the Honey Value Chain

Through a grant from the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization’s Swaziland Agricultural Development Program (SADP), TechnoServe will continue the expansion of the honey (beekeeping) program through the development of a lead beekeeper initiative.


Improving Food Security for Farming Families

TechnoServe will undertake innovative approaches to address the causes of food insecurity across the pillars of access, availability, utilization and stability of food.


Promoting Youth Entrepreneurship

Through a European Union-funded program, TechnoServe is aiming to improve the livelihoods of Swazi youth. Using a proven “train the trainer” methodology, TechnoServe will train 20 non-state actor partners in an economic training curriculum, which will create the potential to train up to 19,000 youths in Swaziland.

Enterprise Development

Developing the Capacity of Entrepreneurs

Through a seven-year program funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, TechnoServe has developed entrepreneurs by focusing on three objectives: support and strengthen today’s entrepreneurs and SMEs, plant the seeds for the entrepreneurs of tomorrow and build local sustainable capacity of financial institutions to support those entrepreneurs and SMEs.
