Hunger and Poverty Alleviation through E-Agriculture and Agri business

The application of ICT system in Agriculture for sustainable food security and rural development will transform the world economy in a very unique way.However, the world will never be transformed by neither Hungry nor Poor people. Our team's fundamentally concern is to develop new business solutions that shall tackle the complex challenges surrounding how to feed and nourish 9+ billion people globally by 2050. We both believes that Hunger is Poverty. Once we feed our 9+ billion people, together we can focus on the sustainable development of our world today.
What is the way forward?
Our team's solution is firmly " E-agriculture and Agribusiness". If we combine the application of the ICT system and our pool of technology filled with a list of professionals the problem will be solved. Our pool of technology consists of Solar Power, Drip irrigation, Green house and Biotech. Since most of the rural don't have access to power or can't afford the daily shooting up power tariff, our innovations will rely on Solar power as the reliable source of energy. We will use solar power to pump and distribute water from the underground water bore holes.The underground water bore holes will save not only the water crisis for human and animals consumption but for our irrigation programs and a huge relief from water bills from different water authorities.

Our Mission

Mission statement: - Reputable rural E-agriculture center for the sustainable food security and environmental conservation.

Our Background

For years, we have been thinking of the outstanding revolutions which have been escalated by the introduction of the ICT in various walks of life. We are original farmers by birth and naturalized conservationists by our environments. We thought; if the ICT can do all the applications that one can think of, why not establish the appropriate application to apply it in agriculture and conservation? Because we can witness the impact of the ICT in other sectors why not in agriculture and conservation? We started researching on possibilities from different sources for various applications in agriculture. We managed to acquire resourceful information and case studies that we could apply to our agriculture system in Tanzania, Africa and worldwide in general; to create a community of people devoted to the exchange of information and ideas to work towards rural and agricultural development. We agreed to establish a reputable rural e-agriculture center which will serve as a catalyst for institutions and individuals in agriculture and rural development. To share knowledge, learn from others and improve decision making about the vital role of ICT to empower rural communities, improve rural livelihoods and build sustainable agriculture, food security and environmental conservation. Information is shared whenever there is demand for such information. Agricultural extension continues to be a key facilitator for achieving food security and also for reducing poverty in the majority of the rural population in most developing countries, including Tanzania. Research evidence indicates that rural livelihoods are considerably enhanced by access to information on improved agricultural practices, market, weather, etc. Further, land and water resources are almost reaching their limits and hence, knowledge resources play a crucial role in achieving food security. Agricultural extension, as an enabler of knowledge resources, is receiving renewed attention across the globe. Most national governments and agricultural stakeholders are trying to revitalize their extension systems. However, With all the efforts we applied on achieving this goal, we haven’t managed to secure a support yet from any organization, government or individual to accomplish this thoughtful innovation. We have been using our personal saving each year and establish one stage after another. Therefore the idea “Thought For Food security, have inspired our life time efforts for this project and we will be very grateful to be enabled to accomplish it.
