Welcome to My Village / Rural communities repopulation

By researching the factors driving rural-urban migration (lack of: in-depth assessment, analysis of economic opportunities, welcoming attitude, adequate infrastructure) in search of a solution, we created "Welcome to My Village", which features three pillars: Welcome, Business, Home.
We organise the community and empower it for its revitalisation and resilience.
With multiple partners, we offer individuals living in cities a "re-emigration package" of introductions, training, marketing studies, housing and business loans, and settlement support that help create the conditions necessary for the sustainable repopulation of rural communities.
