Our vision is to nurture more prosperous and entrepreneurial rural communities in developing countries.
Our mission is to increase farmers’ capacity to sustainably grow quality crops matched to the commercial needs of the agribusiness sector and in doing so, increase food security, develop the private sector and improve the livelihoods of rural communities.
To fulfill our vision, EUCORD focuses on supporting farmers increase their yields of staple crops and to develop efficient value chains, while working with the private sector to guarantee a demand for produce and a supply of key inputs.
