Technoserve, Mozambique

Hannah Lantos worked on a baseline survey of an agro-forestry project in northern Mozambique for Technoserve.  Technoserve helps women and men in the developing world to start and continue to develop small and medium sized enterprises that can help them develop themselves, their families, and their communities.  Hannah was based in Maputo but traveled to the north to meet with local entrepreneurs, women’s groups, government officials, and community members.  She specifically focused on integrating the project into the local area so that people could understand the potential benefit of forestry and poultry projects to women. Finally, Hannah focused on communicating effectively with the government so that the project was well-integrated into the country’s development goals.
