Fair Planet is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase food security and provide new economic opportunities for the millions stuck in poverty. . Fair Planet is engaged in a unique and long-term technology transfer process: On the one hand, we are facilitating access of smallholder farmers to seed of the highest-quality vegetable varieties suitable for their needs. On the other hand, and at the same time, we are training the farmers to use these seeds with minimal changes to their traditional production practices. Trained farmers will gain the opportunity to grow and sell significant crop yields and will benefit from economic growth. Fair Planet's operation model in Ethiopia aims to reach more than 50,000 rural households, thus helping over 360,000 people to leave the poverty cycle.
