A business gathering was held in January 27, 2019 at Pyramid Hotels and Resorts, Debrezeit with the intention of having a cluster based joint corporate social responsibility projects in Debrezeit Cluster Farms at P. The CSR projects will be executed principally by the commercial farms in partnership with Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association (EHPEA) and the responsible public partner from Oromia regional state; Oromia Investment Commission. Community demand driven interventions will be the main focus which could directly contribute to the enhancement of livelihoods of the surrounding communities and contribute to the image building in that respective cluster. As a result of the gathering, a CSR joint committee for the cluster was formed. The Committee will be responsible in the identification, selection and implementation of the projects and will have thorough participatory assessment on the culture and need of the community and will have a commendation based on the outcomes.
