Fair Planet: Freeing African Farmers from Poverty
With a unique, proven impact, in six years we've freed half a million people in Ethiopia from the prison of poverty.
We achieved this by finding high quality tomato, pepper, onion & cabbage varieties best suited to local conditions, and teaching smallholder farmers the basics of modern farming.
With up to 500% higher yields with better quality, subsistence farmers reach sustainable economic growth, leading to improved nutrition & health, empowering women, and ensuring over 90% of children are sent to school.
Now, with your help, we're ready to free millions more in Ethiopia and Tanzania as we start the next transformation: using the same proven method to also include potato production – one of the world’s 4 most important food sources.
Three Steps to Proven Impact
Fair Planet identifies high quality varieties of vegetables best suited to local conditions, and recruits Key Farmers from the region’s biggest villages.
We give Key Farmers these best varieties, and teach them the basics of modern farming. We train local development agents to continue the work after Fair Planet leaves the region.
We guide Key Farmers as yields increase up to 500%, more than doubling their incomes in just ONE season.
90% of neighbors adopt our methods – changing the entire region.
