Economic Development

Promoting economic development and business training are priorities for PRP in combating the chronic poverty of the Malagasy people.  People Reaching People is actively working to ensure sustainable solutions to the problem of slow or stunted economic growth. To do this, Todd and Patsy work with Churches to develop agriculture and animal husbandry businesses that will provide valuable financial resources to the parishes, bring in volunteers to teach women business skills and handicrafts, and facilitate bringing goods to market.
