Our Mission -To provide sustainable and organic agriculture education and consultation that empowers small farmers to expand crop production in Africa.
We help small-scale farmers improve soil fertility, cut down on their use of commercial fertilizer and pesticides, and form small business groups to pool labor, resources and produce for more efficient local marketing. During the past four years, Go Organic Africa has implemented a broad range of training programs to address the varied needs of the small-scale farming sector.

A key contributing factor to this rate has to do with a large geographical feature – mountainous areas (Kigezi highlands- where we
Another rather obvious factor to the little amount of water is the large population of Africa.
Africa’s population is growing, while at the same time water is diminishing, making the average amount of water per person decrease significantly. Also, with the large amount of people living in Africa, only about 10% of those people have access to abundant river water, which is the main source of water in Africa.
There are a number of reasons why poverty has become an epidemic in Africa. Poverty can be the result of political instability, ethnic conflicts, climate change and other man-made causes.
But one of the greatest causes of poverty in Africa is also the most overlooked...the lack of access to clean drinking water. Nearly one billion people do not have access to clean, safe water - that's the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet!
For these people, poverty is a fact of life. The good news... This is a solvable problem. A Tapline tank is the way to go. Check out this http://amatsiko.blogspot.com/2015/05/no-water-no-life.html
