Based in East Africa, SunCulture designs, manufactures, sells, and distributes solar-powered irrigation solutions to improve farmer livelihoods and environmental sustainability. By removing recurring fuel costs, farmers increase annual profits by US $14,000 per acre, conserve up to 80% of water and increase crop yield by 300%.
Impact on Illiteracy
61% of SunCulture farmers farm to increase income and better support their families. Over half specifically mention paying school fees as their motivation. By growing fresh fruits and vegetables that contain a range of nutrients, SunCulture farmers help prevent malnutrition, which is associated with chronic diseases and impaired mental development that hinder childhood education.
