The coronavirus crisis has exposed just how fragile all our lives are.


Do we really want a return to ‘normal’, when normal was already broken for millions of people?

Or shall we take this opportunity to build something that’s anything but normal?

A world that works better for everyone.

We believe we can. And we have proof that better alternatives are possible.

Bring big change to smallholder farms

It’s ironic that the people who produce so much of the world’s food often go hungry. Three quarters of the world’s poorest people are farmers.

They are fighting a losing battle against climate change that causes floods, droughts and destroys crops. When the virus struck, planting and harvesting cycles were interrupted, meaning even tougher times ahead.

We know that improving farming is twice as effective as anything else in reducing poverty. That’s why we’ve pioneered ways to make farming more resilient, climate friendly and capable of providing small scale farmers with decent livelihoods.

The world needs a different food system that can secure food supplies for everyone. We’re helping farmers build that system. You can help. With your support we can continue and expand this work.

Please give today, to help build a world that works better for everyone.
