WAVE Foundation has under its umbrella a couple of social enterprises that go by the name of ‘Angkur Craft’ and ‘Angkur Seed’. While run on commercial basis the enterprises have an expressed objective of community welfare. These enterprises are part of WAVE’s endeavor to develop entities that serve the dual purpose of social development and a source of income for the organization.
Through Angkur Seeds WAVE has strived to address the lack of quality seeds facing farmers in different parts of the country. By providing the farmers with quality seeds WAVE wants to promote sustainable agricultural development, because agriculture remains the main driver of rural economy.
Angkur Craft is a recent addition to WAVE’s social enterprise portfolio. Its aim is to support poor and underserved families by creating opportunities for them to become small entrepreneurs and building market linkage so they can market their products. Women are particularly encouraged to join the Angkur Craft project.
