ACDI/VOCA envisions a world in which all people are empowered to build healthy families, resilient communities, and flourishing societies. Since 1963, we have developed local, tailored solutions that are rooted in business principles. We analyze the entire market system to identify factors that inhibit economic growth and facilitate linkages to strengthen and make markets more inclusive.
Our market systems approach means we work with a wide range of actors. We partner with the private sector, governments, and NGOs to build the capacity of farmer and business groups to be more productive and adaptive. We find entry points for financial services to encourage investments that foster resilience. We empower vulnerable groups such as women, youth, and the underprivileged so that they can benefit from market changes. And we embrace local stewardship of natural resources to achieve sustainable results.
Join us as we pursue a world in which every woman and man is empowered to succeed in the global economy.
