KIT Royal Tropical Institute has been commissioned by Nespresso to design and implement the Gender Capacity Strengthening Programme (GCSP). The overall objective of the GCSP is to strengthen the capacities of Nespresso agronomists in selected countries to become catalyst of gender transformative change. The design and rationale of the GCSP reflects a number of pedagogical principles, namely: content and practice, learner-centred adult education methodologies, blended methods and competency-focused learning. The GCSP is embedded in the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program.
KIT Royal Tropical Institute is a non-for-profit organisation that aims to enhance the positive impact of agencies, governments and corporations on sustainable development in low-and middle-income countries. Using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a general framework for action, we translate practice into knowledge, and apply this knowledge to achieve the aims of the SDGs. We are able to achieve this by exercising the knowledge we gain in advisory services, research, teaching, training, dialogue and discussions.

The HIV and AIDS epidemic has a dramatic impact on the social and economic situation of individuals communities and societies.
Improving access to equitable and quality sexual and Reproductive Health, including HIV and AIDS related services is high on the global public health agenda.
