TRC strives to be economically self - sufficient
Models of self - sufficiency are built into every program and project
It is important for TRC to eventually not rely on foreign funding to operate
In everything we do, we build in a self - sufficiency component. This ensures that programs and projects that are implemented have a long - term focus.
We work with communities to achieve 100% self - sufficiency
Self - sufficiency is integrated into all our programming. This is because increasing economic empowerment allows individuals to have choices for their future. Often development initiatives fail because sustainability is not factored in - leaving programs susceptible to ongoing funding procurement. We are trying to reverse this, by increasing TRC’s self - sufficiency over time by making the Centre run more efficiently and effectively. The result is the eventual decrease in the amount it relies on foreign investment over time.
We have a number of programs which earn TRC an income - and help with its self-sufficiency
Currently we generate income through operating a commercial piggery, fee’s collected from the school and medical clinic, through the charging electronics off solar, selling of produce from the TRC farm to hotels and restaurants. Future income generation goals include commercial chicken operations and digital solar micro-grid business centers
