This case study is an ideal example of how commercial, non-profit operators and development agencies can combine forces to build partnerships with farmers that create new business opportunities and build a sustainable future for them and their families.

The results achieved over the past 10 years empowering smallholder farmers while driving transformational change in Rwandan’s tea industry have been incredible. This case study provides a timely and detailed overview of the successes and lessons learned, providing important reflection as we continue to grow the impact of our joint endeavours.
