Enroll A Student
One year of university
Your donation will enable a child from a poor African family to enroll in university and take courses in sustainable agriculture or other development-related fields to obtain the necessary knowledge to battle poverty and achieve economic growth in Africa. Your donation will not only aid an African child with his/her personal development by fulfilling his/her desire to learn, but also equip him/her with the knowledge...
Your donation will be used to help farmers harvest water that is available to them. A simple irrigation system connecting their farms to major rivers is enough to double their productivity. This gift will be used to improve the knowledge to maintain water catchment areas, where water is stored during heavy rain and used at a later stage to irrigate farmer’s fields. Your gift will...
Your donation will be used to assist farmers in getting access to biotechnology products developed by researchers. It will support an initiative by scientists, farmers and policy makers to develop biosafety systems in Africa. African governments will then be guided on which biotechnology tools and products will work under what circumstances to increase farmer’s productivity. The gift visualizes the efforts scientists and researchers are making...
Your donation will help farmers get connected to scientists or technology developers. Farmers will be able to access the required technology to increase their productivity, fight the rampant pests and diseases, and drought. With your donation, research scientists can listen to farmers to develop required technology and they would encourage farmers to improve their harvest. An increased harvest can enable farmers to store more food...
Equip A Scientist
One computer for Africa
Your donation will provide a computer to one of the many hardworking African scientists struggling to respond to diverse challenges faced by African farmers which are taken for granted by farmers in the US or Europe such as increase yield, fighting pests and diseases. At least five African scientists would share one computer if not, they go to Internet cafés to work on their data...
Increased banana sales
Your gift will assist farmers to organize themselves into farmer's organization and gather enough quantities of bananas to sell in bulk and consecutively buy their own trucks to transport bananas to bigger markets. Organized farmers will also be able to compete in the open market for exports such as multi-national companies as Dole, Nestle. Farmer products could be sold to big supermarkets with higher prices,...
Connect A Farmer
One phone or radio
Your donation will provide a mobile phone (and a year’s service fee) or a radio to a farmer to enable him to communicate with his peers, researchers, or agriculture advisory services. It will empower him/her to exchange and acquire information: how to improve harvest, fight rampant pests and diseases, and acquire the best varieties. This compensates for the poor basic infrastructure of agricultural information systems...
Your donation will assist universities in improving the physical conditions (e.g. purchase up-to-date publications, add research equipment to the laboratories, etc) to strengthen teaching, research and educational programs and to ameliorate the quality of higher education in Africa. The fund will also be used to tackle the problems such as insufficient teaching facilities or qualified teachers, out-of-date course materials and research equipment, poor educational infrastructure,...
