The four strategies

Through trial and error we settled on four strategies, and devised metrics to measure impact and guide our iterative decision making.

Cause Autonomy:

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.

We developed

50

changemakers.

Local changemakers trained

1551

farmers

35%

have continued to train farmers even without our direct support.

Multiply Impact

To truly make a dent in the fight against hunger we cannot afford to grow incrementally. We must achieve exponential growth.

20x

Each local changemaker goes out and teaches at least 20 farmers

74

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.

53%

of our changemakers have stayed connected with their mentors and instructors since 2018

26%

of changemakers engage with their global counterparts on a monthly basis

Continue Learning

Our process ensure 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

8

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.
