Our Mission

Strategies for International Development (SID) is a U.S. nonprofit that develops and promotes better methods for eradicating rural poverty.  75% of world poverty is rural poverty, and the great majority of the rural poor are small farmers who are making the transition from subsistence to commercial farming.  We help farmers meet and negotiate with buyers, make business plans, and increase productivity and product quality in response to the opportunities of their market.  We also organize best practices workshops with other NGOs in each region where we work in order to share lessons learned, agree on best practices, and improve the coverage and impact of all our projects.  SID works in Guatemala, Perú, and Bolivia, the three countries in Central and South America with the greatest number of rural poor. read more..
