We have entered into a licencing arrangement with African Cooperative Action Trust ("ACAT") in Howick, South Africa. They have an established and proven track record of providing functional skills training to the destitute poor throughout Africa and around the world.

The ACAT training materials are professionally designed - and have been field tested for over 20 years. As such, these programs are highly effective in achieving the desired outcomes.

The ACAT skills training modules, some of which are outlined below - effectively empower the poor to break the cycle of poverty through education, skills training and assistance with better farming practices.

How you can help - We need instructors as well as funding for these training modules - please contact us for more information on how you can help.

In a previous training session - Timothy Makwalo from Iris Africa, Malawi attended the ACAT training course in Howick, South Africa where 65 leaders from around the world participated. They came from 9 different nations - Swaziland, South Africa, Burundi, Kenya, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Haiti and Canada.
