Focus Areas

Improving livelihoods of smallholder farmers

Synergos promotes collaboration among government, businesses, investors, NGOs, and farmers’ organizations to improve the lives of smallholder farmers, their families and communities. By supporting the transformation of agricultural systems, we are contributing to reducing hunger and poverty and creating economic opportunities for women and youth.

Good nutrition is foundational to individual, national, and global development. Synergos improves nutrition, particularly among children, by promoting collaboration among government and international agencies, businesses, NGOs, and communities.
