One Urban Garden

Issues of food security have wide-reaching implications for people and the environment, particularly in low and middle-income countries. One Urban Garden aims to promote urban agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa by establishing integrated, organic urban farms that will serve as production, training, and seedling distribution centres.

Mission Possible

Mission Possible uses electromagnetic induction tools and 3D drone mapping to provide smallholder farmers with soil analysis and land profiling information, as well as planting, harvesting, and marketing advice. With a better understanding of their soil, farmers can better predict environmental behaviours and leverage improved technique to increase crop yields.

AgriWealth Limited (AWL)

AgriWealth Limited addresses the problem of land scarcity and changing agricultural methods in Rwanda, due to climate change. The venture will bring modern urban growing techniques to a demonstration farm, and use this platform to educate farmers and spread these skills and technologies, including eventually creating large, holistic sustainable farms in subsistence agriculture communities.

Zawadi Healthcare Services

Gift Kiti is launching Zawadi Healthcare Services in Kashani, Kenya (near Mombasa) to enhance the quality of life for residents by constructing a borehole that will provide safe and clean water to the local Zawadi Healthcare clinic, while also providing a water source to a town that is currently facing water rationing. Gift aims to transform the clinic into a community hub for other sustainable enterprises, like a community garden.

Sparky Thermal Dehydrator

Sparky is a low cost, efficient device that dries a diverse array of farm produce ten times faster than the conventional sun drying method. It uses bio-fuel as a source of energy and it reduces post harvest losses which is the leading cause of food insecurity in Uganda.

Pamana

Justine Recio, Danielle Dana, & Hannah Nolasco are the co-founders of PAMANA. PAMANA (the Filipino word for 'heritage') will use scientific analysis to improve crop selection, solid waste management, and irrigation in indigenous farming communities in the Philippines. By combining science and technology with local know-how, PAMANA will focus on the improvement of current farming practices of indigenous Filipino groups, and the promotion of environmentally sustainable lifestyles and agricultural practices.

Prawji Mama Food Bank

Prawji Mama Food Bank will deploy a reliable and sustainable food bank system in Uganda. The team will work with subsistence farmers in Gulu to raise awareness about the power of food storage to increase usable yields and find the best time to sell for the highest price, using a per-bag fee to store farmers excess produce in a central holding facility for sale at the best moment. Focusing on women and youth, the team will scale this system to help overcome hunger and poverty in rural communities.

The Cacao Project

The Cacao Project is an initiative which provides participating farmers of San Fernando with cacao seedlings (a long-term, resilient crop which provides them with a considerable income after three years and will be productive for up to 20-25 years), and short term crops such as bok choy, okra, and pumpkins (which will be productive after 19-30 days) to intercrop with the cacao. The produce is sold to the Cacao Project Organization, which then sells it to international buyers. Farmers are paid a fair wage and better positioned for sustainable success.

Baringo Asali

Baringo Asali aims to increase the revenue generated from honey production by marginalized communities in Baringo County of Kenya through the application of modern beekeeping techniques, local community skill training, established networks of buyers, and partnerships with local and international apiaries. Recently, the venture purchased and set up 10 modern beehives in its target community, and it has trained 15 people total in modern beekeeping practices.
