Smallholder farmers lack access to inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, and pest-control products. Those inputs are either too expensive, sold far away from the villages, or of inferior quality. In Mphande, Tevel is helping farmers organize to make inputs more accessible. Tevel helps farmers register as cooperatives which enables them to buy inputs in bulk and receive government assistance in accessing fertilizer, seeds, and other inputs. Tevel teaches composting solutions and establishes micro-lending programs for farmers to use in order to access vital inputs.
We are currently fundraising $50,000 for a Matching Challenge, to support a new project Tevel’s Sustainable ״Agriculture Innovation center in Zambia״.
If you’d like to join the matching challenge, please let us know in your note.
