In February 2017, our Board of Directors approved ECHO's Strategic Plan of 2017-2021 which guides our missional impact and work. 

Multiplying Impact is the theme of ECHO’s new 5-Year Strategic Plan. This Plan sets two big goals: to increase our direct training impact to over 500,000 people each year; and, to increase the number of other people/organizations we regularly support to over 17,500!

Over the past few years we have been privileged to see growing impact from ECHO’s equipping work. This multiplication typically happens in two ways:

- Through those farmers, missionaries, Peace Corps Volunteers, and development workers that ECHO directly trains; and,

- Through those people and organizations that ECHO resources with knowledge about plants, practices, and appropriate technologies that can improve the volume and value of small scale farm food production.
