Impact by the Numbers
In one harvest season in Kenya,
"I have seen for myself how the thresher works. To me, using the thresher is much better than using manual labor because it takes less time. Here we have taken less than 2 hours, a task that would have otherwise taken two or three days to process manually."
Naomi, green gram farmer in Kenya
“Being a rural entrepreneur, I have been able to bring in other youth to help me with the maize shelling business and in return they get a commission and others get daily pay during the season to help them in providing for their families”
Bernard, young entrepreneur in Kenya
Our work is in alignment with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a global movement to create a healthier, sustainable, and more equitable planet. Launched in 2015, the SDGs provide “a global blueprint for dignity, peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future.”
The 17 goals recognize the interwoven nature of economic, social and environmental development and acknowledge that we all must do our part. Bountifield’s mission and programs proudly contribute to several of these goals.
