Springboard aims to change the old and poor perception of farming – we believe farming is a dignified source for livelihood and an exciting way of life. It should be done in a way that nourishes the health of people and nature.
The enterprise helps small scale farmers make a sustainable living, grow fair food, diversify, educate and train them to capture the most out of the value chain. The farmers grow cacao, plantain, rice, corn and fruit trees like pawpaw. It promotes a transition to sustainable and organic farming amongst over 3000 farmers.
Springboard also supports rural women in entrepreneurship with relevant business skills and micro-funds to start village enterprises.
