street in Africa

We are working to help Africa to feed itself better, today and into the future.

Food Challenges Today

In sub-Saharan Africa 1 in 4 lack adequate food for healthy, active life.

Center of Growth

Africa will have 50% of world population growth over the next 3 decades, adding 1 billion people.

Our work helps strengthen the middle of the food value chain.

We help develop an underleveraged link in the food value chain - food processors and mills - to build and grow the entire African food economy. Our volunteers give world-class expertise to strengthen companies - from facility design to product development to providing the technical and business know-how - that African food companies need to grow. Strengthening the middle of the value chain has a ripple effect, strengthening markets for smallholder farmers and bring more nutritious food to consumers.
