RWF recognizes that the cost of neglecting the rural poor are consequential when compared with the cost of intervention. This is why RWF's main areas of intervention are in the following areas:


Women and Agriculture Program (WAAP)

This includes the provision of services on innovative techniques in agriculture (extension). Formation of groups (Group Dynamics). Provision of agricultural inputs. Training, Marketing and Market Linkages. Production and Enterprise Planning and Management/development (EPM).

Women and Health Program (WAHP)

Counselling and training on Reproductive health issues, HIV/AIDS project of Compassion (APC), Hygiene and Nutrition, and other related health programmes that will be of benefit to the rural women and that would not hinder their productivity and income.

Women and Girls Education (WAGE)

This is a very important area that gives the women confidence and enhances empowerment. Women and the girl-child are provided with educational and literacy programs, mentoring and skills development to enable them regain their self-esteem, become role models as well as partners in development.  Some of the activities in this program area include the Girls Education and scholarship Program (GEASP), Peace building and Tolerance Education, Adult Literacy Program (ALP) and Summer Camping activities.

Women and Business Program (WABP)

This program encourages income generating activities which includes Enterprise Planning and management (EPM).

Microcredit Schemes (MCS)

Under the micro-credit schemes, RWF facilitates loans to selected families in selected communities to enable them embark on defined businesses.
