The Executive Director is the administrative head of the organisation exercising oversight responsibilities. Below the Director are two Program Coordinators - one for Community Development and the other for the Agricultural Improvement and Land Access Program (AILAP).

These include the Technical Officers for the Mobrowa and AILAP programs; the Technical officer (Agricultural Development); the Finance and Administration Officer; the Program Officer (Community Development); and the Business Development Officer. These line Officers coordinate among themselves and supervise community development officers and agricultural development officers for successful program implementation.
