The growth in food demand is the result of the combined effects of world population growth to over 9 billion by 2050, governments in Africa understand the urgent need to develop strategies for developing their agriculture potential which, is universally forecasted to supply some 60% of the world’s feeding needs in the future.
We work with Africa’s leading farmers associations, universities and NGO’s who each nominate several farmers to help them fund their individual projects to improve food security, create employment and alleviate poverty.
Our social action funding site provides a platform to get projects off the ground with public donations, powered by the Mask-Africa SEO experts who will generate regular targeted traffic to improve the fund visibility on the internet.
It could be $500 to fix a tractor, $1,000 to buy feed and fertilizer, $50,000 to set up a farm or $500,000 to start a food processing plant. In fact it could be anything in the agricultural world as long as it is a solid idea approved by our chosen accredited farmers associations, universities and NGO’s.
CrowdSource@Mask-Africa will be launched at our July event in Cape Town.
Developing agriculture in Africa to feed the world………………..
Mask-Africa is proud to announce the Food Security & Nutrition Program 15-16 July 2013, the first in a series of events to discuss ways to accelerate sustainable investment in African agriculture to improve food security. We aim to bring together leading government officials, farmers associations, universities, NGO’s, agencies, investors and business associations from the farming community to discuss with international companies their aims, challenges and goals, announce opportunities, time scales, inward investment, their agricultural needs, and how to improve interaction with the smallholder farmer.
