EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES WITH INNOVACOOP
Farmers face all sorts of challenges ranging from inadequate farming techniques, insufficient farm finances for input, low yield, inaccessible farm to market roads are a few of the challenges faced in our communities. INNOVACOOP is here to bring forth channels through different aids to facilitate and dilute some of the everyday problems. Empowering our community means to gain control over the factors and decisions that shape our lives. It is the process by which we increase asset attributes and build capacities to gain access to partners, networks and/or a voice, in order to gain control. Through agriculture, INNOVACOOP will better and empower the community to improve lives.
As Andrea Mason quotes ‘Empowered Communities seeks to create a genuine and balanced partnership between Indigenous organisations, government and corporate , where everybody is working together on a level playing field and towards a shared strategy.’
