Voloshinka Medical Centre

A life-changing medical centre opens in Voloshinka, Kazakhstan

People living in Voloshinka, Kazakhstan, had to travel over 160 kilometres to receive medical care or reach the closest pharmacy. That has finally changed as a small medical centre opened its doors this year, where a nurse as well as a dentist assist patients coming in from neighbouring villages. We are glad we were able to contribute to this small, yet significant step towards facilitating locals’ access to basic healthcare by financing the centre’s equipment and drugs while Kazakh authorities cover human resources’ costs.

Farmer Impact Grant and Technical Training for Women Rice Farmers

Women rice farmers in Côte d'Ivoire struggle to access mechanisation for agricultural production. Often left with the least fertile soils and the most difficult land to cultivate, women would highly benefit from farm machinery. It would protect the paddy from rainfalls, reduce losses and allow for faster harvesting times, thus improving women rice farmers’ income and livelihoods. INOKS Capital contributes to reducing the barrier to mechanisation by supporting Socomci, an Ivorian company active in rice processing and packaging.
