About Strategies for International Development

Strategies for International Development (SID), founded in 1994, is a nonprofit organization that designs, proves, and promotes better methods for helping poor farmers make the transition from subsistence to successful commercial farming. The regional approach is SID's latest innovation and it gives large numbers of farmers an opportunity to increase their income and graduate from poverty. We collaborate with farmers and local partners to help create sustainable prosperous rural communities, where farmers do not need to migrate to cities or other countries in search of employment and a better life.
