With 60% of people without internet access across the globe, most farmers are unable to access information that could transform their livelihoods. The Cafédirect Producers' Foundation has created WeFarm, which uses basic mobile phones to allow farmers to share ideas and crowdsource innovative solutions across continents and languages. The technology has already helped a farmer in Peru, who could no longer afford fertilizer, to receive a fully translated recipe from a Kenyan farmer for a low cost organic alternative. In the next three years, WeFarm will create a more robust and secure system that will help to empower five million smallholders with the information needed to take action. It will enable them to improve their farming practices, with the goal of lifting their families and communities out of poverty, and improving food security globally.
