Butajira

Ethiopia

Located in south-central Ethiopia, in the mid-highland elevation with relatively cool weather. During Fair Planet's 6 years in Butajira, we have gained expertise and developed training methodologies that we share with our local partners.

 

With access to better seeds and know-how, smallholder farmers in Butajira significantly improved their productivity and income.
