Did you know that turning peanuts into peanut butter yields a ten-fold increase in profit? That’s why The Hunger Project trains farmers to add value to their crops.
Another of our strategies is to bring farmers together in collectives so they can offer produce at a scale that attracts the attention of bigger customers. For example, farmers at some of our Epicentres in Burkina Faso and Senegal sell their produce to the World Food Program and UNICEF, opening up their crops, yields and farms to global markets and international exports.
Making this news even more positive is the fact that farmers who’ve worked with THP’s Epicentres are now generating higher income for themselves and their families while helping out international NGOs. Pretty amazing!
