About Us

Rural Relief Foundation-Enterprise5000 initiative strategies seek to build people’s capacities, leadership and confidence. We train unemployed university graduates, women, farmers, SME’s and entrepreneurs equipping them with the skills, methods and knowledge needed to take self-reliant actions to improve their life and conditions in their communities through professional and international business-to-business links (B2B links).

 

OUR AIM

Our aim is to halt poverty rate in other to overcome the deep regret that people in the developing countries often find themselves in as a result of failed development initiatives. RRF-Enterprise5000 initiative urges people not to wait to be rescued, but to take action now to meet their basic needs.

 

HOW WE WORK

The first step in Enterprise5000 initiative, at this grass roots-level, we create different professional training workshops; Information technical skills training through international business-to-business links (B2B links), which is a promising solution to one of the primary obstacles facing the rural communities / low-income entrepreneurs SME’S, women and farmers: the geographic distances which inhibit networking with other businesses, and which segregate them from a larger marketplace. The Internet and other networks are now making it possible for entrepreneurs even in the most remote locations to communicate and do business on a region-wide, national, or even international basis. Working in conjunction with other organizations, RRF-Enterprise5000 gives program participants technical skills training adapted to individual needs; and, in collaboration with organizations which precondition and redistribute used items, we also assure that they obtain the necessary imported items at low or no cost, however, we vigorously trained them on Agronomy Exportation and possibly seal a contract or deal for them via our partner link in Asia and Globally (Tradekey), where we are a premium member.

 

Rural Relief Foundation believes that broadly-implemented technical skills and networking programs such as Sustainable Development has the potential to transform the life of many struggling entrepreneurs, women and girls, farmers, inequality advocacy and also to change the economic landscape of impoverished rural communities. RRF Initiative programs are predicated on the assumption that these entrepreneurs already have 90% of what it takes to compete in the marketplace — intelligence, ambition, initiative, and talent. After years of our experimentation, workshops and program development, RRF has fashioned a superb, easily reliable model in Enterprise5000, and established a high degree of credibility among community groups, policy makers, and funders. With your support, we can make that 10% difference in the lives of these hard-working people and the future of our rural communities.

 

WHERE WE WORK

We empower people from all the 36states in Nigeria region to create their own vision for the future, through our information technical skills; we commit them to achieving it and outline the actions that are needed to succeed via “mentoring”. Each participant leaves the workshop with a specific project for the following “three months or a year in each state” based entirely on local and international resources. In achieving this first success, people’s initial inspiration develops into self-confidence via our mentoring.

After the Enterprise5000 first success, we select local leaders from our board and attendees, who we call “animators,” they will be train to lead the Enterprise5000 for others in the area, and to facilitate the ongoing actions that stemmed from the workshop.

There are other vital steps in Enterprise5000 initiative. We have additional trainings for local animators. These leaders become the spark plugs for international action. As people take more substantial action, we provide skills trainings in literacy, numeracy, B2B trading, documentation and international laws. We organize people into self-help groups to gain a stronger trading through our international B2B partnership with Tradekey (Asia).
