APRIL will continually seek opportunities to consult and align with the interests of communities and create shared value through:
Strengthened efforts in alleviating poverty in rural communities around APRIL’s areas of operation, through creation of jobs, providing better access to quality education, community empowerment, and enhancement of rural livelihood.
Pro-active Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities especially village entrepreneurship incubations and farming systems.
Inclusion of smallholders/Small Medium Enterprises (SME) into APRIL’s supply chains, where appropriate.
Engaging stakeholders through regular multi stakeholder forums and focus groups to obtain inputs on social issues and develop a monitoring and reporting system.
