The Center serves as a One-Stop-Shop offering a variety of services to the local community.

The in-class training is complemented by practical learning on the adjacent Farmer Field School i.e. a model Farm which encompasses a Greenhouse, open farm and Poultry house that provide practical examples of modern farming practices. The Ahero Resource Center is also equipped with comprehensive rainwater harvesting infrastructure to fully utilize the short and heavy rains in the region. The center runs an Early Childhood Education Program for 45 children who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. The children receive free education, meals and stationary. There is a Safe house in the center that is expected to provide temporary accommodation to the people who are facing perceived danger. Also, the construction of a Computer ICT centre is currently ongoing and it’s expected to offer training in information technology to the youth in order to increase their employability. From time to time depending with the availability of funds, 30 school going Orphans and Vulnerable Children get a free lunch at the center to improve their concentration and school performance.

Sea wall is a form of coastal defense constructed where the sea, and associated coastal processes, impact directly upon the landforms of the coast. The major reason is to protect areas of human habitation, conservation and leisure activities from the action of tides, waves or tsunamis. This project is focusing not on man-made seawall but the natural seawall that is built naturally by mangrove forests along the sea show. Mangrove trees that are expected to stretch along Coastal lines are important as animal habitats and natural seawalls. However despite this reality Mangrove forest are among the most threatened habitats in various countries. These trees may be disappearing quickly than other inland forests than expected. Experts are informing us that, the outcome of disappearing of mangrove will result to Fisheries declines, Threats to migratory bird species, Degradation of Clean water supplies, Salinization of coastal soils, Erosion and land subsidence. Some of the impact mentioned has started to be visible threatening sustainability of Islands, people and the rest of the eco system. This project is organized to respond to these challenge hence contribute to the ecological sustainability.
