We believe a sustainable and resilient food system needs to reconnect producers and consumers. We aim to empower people and communities and give them the tools and knowledge to develop the food systems they need for their community. Our flagship project is to create innovative, independent, community food enterprises. We have experience in running innovative food enterprises with social and ecological aims. We know that good food can transform our planet and our society. We also know that making values-driven food enterprise work takes commitment, perseverance, partnerships and support. Our project empowers people to create the life they want for themselves; and gives people a real say in their food system. If you care about the poorest, you care about agriculture,” “Investments in agriculture are the best weapons against hunger and poverty, and they have made life better for billions of people. The African agriculture community needs to be more innovative, coordinated, and focused to help farmers grow more. If we can do that, we can dramatically reduce suffering and build self-sufficiency.History has shown us what’s possible when people can grow enough food. If we want to transform the lives of people in Africa, we need to focus our efforts on raising agricultural productivity, creating markets and making agriculture a business.
