Studies have shown that women are not only more likely to reinvest their income back into their families and community, but they do so on a much greater scale than their male counterparts. Given that women produce roughly 60% of the food in Africa, the Harvest Fund realized, early on, that when we assist in the efforts of Zambia’s women farmers, not only do we support gender parity, but we help entire communities thrive.
Storage & Elimination of Food Loss
We introduce airtight storage solutions to our farmers and teach them correct storage solutions, so that food is never lost due to spoilage or pests.
We help our farmers gain access to water pumps powered by renewable energy so that they can become resilient in the face of drought.
We restore over-exploited soil by treating it with carefully selected nutrients that stabilize greenhouse gas emissions while increasing production.
Profit shares from produce sold at market are reinvested back into the Harvest Fund, allowing us to expand our impact, year after year.
