  2. Connect small scale farmers in remote rural communities to markets through development of partnership with NGOs, Development Finance Institutions and charities in origin.
  3. Enhance productivity by providing education and training in sustainable agricultural practices to small scale farming communities.
  4. Promote Gender equality: roughly 50% of the production handled (directly or indirectly) by CTCS is produced by women farmers.
