Over the course of the Agriculture Innovation Challenge, we'll be featuring highlights of contributions from each of our themed mission areas. This week, we've seen an incredible number of inspirations and thought-starters from our global community. As the Ideas Phase progresses, we would love for you to spread the word and invite organizations working within these focus areas to join the challenge!


Mission 1: Access to Financial Resources

Using Village Savings and Loans –  An initiative to create Village Savings and Loans programs for women farmers that do not have access to proper banking services in rural Sierra Leone.


Mission 2: Connection to Markets

Food Rescue Program – An idea to setup Food Donation programs that will channel surplus and unmarketable crops to aid food insecure communities in Tanzania.


Mission 3: Access to Information

Postharvest Training and Service Center  – An initiative to build postharvest centers with training programs and processing facilities to help small-scale farmers in Uganda reduce food waste.


Mission 4: Storage and Processing

Turn Corn Cobs into Clean Energy – A mission to deliver biomass gasifiers capable of turning agricultural waste into clean energy for off the grid communities in Liberia.



We’re looking forward to seeing your ideas for bringing resilience innovation to urban slum communities. Join the challenge to support communities as they adapt and transform to meet the challenges of climate change!

Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me. MY NAME IS dickson walter,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(AKHERETEMPLE@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and DR AKHERE assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly CONTACT this wonderful man Dr AKHERE,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to DR AKHERE for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.DR AKHERE, Thanks.. for bring joy and happiness to my family ones again thanks if you need his help email he AKHERETEMPLE@gmail.com
