The main goal of the organization is to empower poor communities in rural areas to undertake development activities at their own initiatives, with the aim of enhancing their livelihoods on a sustained basis through food and income security


MDI believes that poor, given some outside support can create capital and use it efϐiciently to improve their quality of life and achieve self-reliance. Land and labor being the primary asset of the poor, sustainable agriculture development should be at the core of intervention towards ensuring faster strides in the food and income security of local poor households.
