Africa doesn’t need charity, it needs changemakers.
Despite Africa receiving 1 Trillion in aid, 60% of its population practicing agriculture, and an abundance of arable land, more Africans face hunger today than 10 years ago.
Africa does not lack capital or resources. It needs Changemakers.
To end hunger
We teach resilient agriculture
To end poverty
We nurture entrepreneurship
The four strategies
Through trial and error we settled on four strategies, and devised metrics to measure impact and guide our iterative decision making.
We empower local changemakers providing training, resources and a global network. We are successful when they leverage lessons learned and go out to influence local farmers into adopting resilient agriculture.
Local changemakers trained
have continued to train farmers even without our direct support.
To truly make a dent in the fight against hunger we cannot afford to grow incrementally. We must achieve exponential growth.
Each local changemaker goes out and teaches at least 20 farmers
Thereby our impact spread to 74 villages
Engage The World
African changemakers are connected to coaches and experts all across the world to amplify their ability to solve local problems and build a global network. This is not a one way street. Coaches and experts have reported that volunteering has expanded their sense of global responsibility, and empathy.

Our process ensures we continue to learn because what worked yesterday may not work tomorrow. We inspect our progress by tracking key metrics and adapting our plans as we experiment and learn more.
We have piloted
initiatives, gathered data and continuously refined our strategies
As we learned more we have focused on just two, Changemaker development for Farming and for Entrepreneurship.
