HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Development of rural communities» in the South Caucasus

In the South Caucasus HEKS/EPER is active in Georgia and Armenia. It strives to foster peaceful coexistence and improve living conditions in rural areas through income-generating activities and by strengthening civil society. To boost their crop yields and incomes, smallholders broaden their knowledge of organic farming and improve their access to infrastructure, micro-credit and markets. Besides, to strengthen social cohesion, HEKS/EPER supports its partner organizations in building a network which, in collaboration with opinion leaders, media and civil society organizations, provides members with unbiased information about politics, society and the ongoing conflicts in the South Caucasus.
