The New Idea
Priscilla is creating and sustaining women’s interest in the socio-economic development of the rural North. She is positioning them to better manage their natural resources, creating linkages for them to access credit to engage in small and medium scale enterprise and giving them procurement skills. Through the adoption of solar dryers Priscilla is fostering rural entrepreneurship, promoting food security and sustaining peace.
