80% of the poor in Sub-Saharan Africa work as rural subsistence farmers.
Each night, 75% of their children go hungry because they struggle to grow enough to feed their families, especially during the dry season. Land is abundant, but they do not have sufficient inputs to maximize agriculture.
They need tools to maximize the utility of their land and produce food. 12-15 million farmers in Africa would benefit from irrigation. If Africa reaches just 20% of farmland irrigated, the “hungry season” will become a thing of the past.
