Strong farmers' and entrepreneurs' associations provide powerful leverage for the development of their regions - as long as they grant equal opportunities to everybody, including women and young people. This may sound easy, but it is not always the case. An inclusive approach is only sustainable if people learn to think and behave in an inclusive way, leaving behind stereotypes and prejudices.

The Trias Inclusion Route produces radical structural changes in members' awareness of inclusive behaviour, going beyond the boundaries of age and gender. The success of the Inclusion Route in El Salvador is inspiring the other Trias offices worldwide to work towards an entrepreneurial environment where everybody matters.

At Trias, the inclusion process is embedded in our theory of change. The inclusion process aspires structural change at both the institutional, the people-to-people and the personal level. The methodology is applicable in all organisations.
