To support gynecologists and women’s rights activists such as Dr. Denis Mukwege in DRC, we invest in expanding local cassava production by and for women and girls victims of sexual and gender based violence; and initiate local fabrication of surgical alcohol made out of cassava, to:
- Provide local clinics with quality pharmaceutical alcohol (otherwise imported from China or India)
- Increase sustainable revenue for women producers of cassava
- Promote women’s health education and sharing best practices to other regions
We help our beneficiaries multiply their production rate by 5. We do that by giving them access to quality inputs, to agronomic expertise, as well as monitoring and agro-ecological management based on the latest research and innovation. We also put in place a fair and stable market for the production of these women farmers.
Rural congolese women often die of infection due to the lack of access to affordable antiseptics and disinfectants. We transform local cassava into surgical alcohol for use in local clinics to fight this curse.
We offer free elementary school to the children of the cobalt mining community of Fungurume, walking them through a solid K-6 program while teaching them how to protect their environment and face climate change. Our goal is to serve 200 kids by 2025, showing them a sustainable future away from artisanal mining.
