Fighting for the right to exist
The best guarantee for structural progress is the development of a civil society. This is why Trias and its institutional financiers support the development of strong local and national farmers’ organisations in Congo. We pay particular attention to the quality improvement of farming products with a high added value, such as cacao and palm oil. We are also increasingly providing support to groups of disadvantaged entrepreneurs. We follow up closely the core capacities of all partners.
Do farmers in Congo have rights?
The family farmers have forever been left to fend for themselves. With Trias' support they are joining forces on national level.
Family farmers claim cocoa export
The potential for cocoa production is huge in the DRC. However the family farmers are not the ones benefiting from it. Trias wants this to change.
Women take fate into their own hands
Female entrepreneurship is still in its infancy in Congo. But don't be wrong about this, women also have dreams. Trias gives them the necessary support.
Boerenbond will continue to finance the WFO membership for the Congolese farmers’ association Conapac over the next two years. The two parties were brought together by Trias.
Former VRT reporter Guy Janssens travelled to Congo with the support of Trias to train specialised journalists. 'The challenges for agriculture are enormous,' said Janssens.
Trias commissioned former VRT reporter Guy Janssens and Michiel Van Meervenne to travel to Congo to support their local colleagues with the production of pre-elecion videos.
