They are acknowledged leaders in a wide range of disciplines and well respected in Uganda and overseas. We have both permanent and part time workers that support our work. Their areas of specialization cut across various areas of innovation for development

Our mission is to promote the application and advancement of science, technology, innovations and next generation management practices (STIMPS) to enhance entrepreneurship, productivity, manufacturing and processing. Specifically, we focus on improving productivity of specialized skills of the people in the Tropics and we use and demonstrate the power of using STIMPS in production, manufacturing and processing. TRIDI also trains and provide education of next generation creative thinkers and leaders in responding to most demanding and rigorous priorities to eradicate hunger, fight poverty, promote economic growth and enhance sustainable use of natural resources. The method we use is advocacy, production, manufacturing and processing while we research and train.

TRIDI collaborates with its partners (governments, other NGOs, Government Extension Workers, researcher, Private Companies, individuals, local councils, and farmers) both at lower (field) and higher (technical) levels, to implement activities. Through this approach, the services are able to reach many stakeholders with a limited work force and funds, achieving high-level synergy. This collaboration approach is positioned to minimize start-up activities and maximize implementation of activities. This approach also ensures sustainability is guaranteed and capacity of partners is built and that information is passed over to so many other beneficiary farmers. In implementing its work TRIDI collects both qualitative and quantitative data and analyses it for reporting and feedback purposes. The feedback is done in terms of meetings with stakeholders, leaflets, technical bulletins, reports and workshops including publications.
