BENEFITING: KickStart-International, Inc.
KickStart International: Changing the way the world fights poverty.
KickStart's model works. KickStart empowers poor families to start their own profitable farming business & escape poverty forever.
KickStart International is an award-winning, nonprofit social enterprise with a mission to lift millions of people in Africa out of poverty quickly, cost-effectively, and sustainably. They do this by designing and mass-marketing durable yet affordable “MoneyMaker” branded irrigation pumps. KickStart realized long ago that with affordable irrigation tools, poor small-scale farmers in sub-Saharan Africa can go from not growing enough food to growing enough to start a profitable business selling their surplus crops.
The number one need of the poor is a way to make money. Farmers who purchase our pumps start profitable and sustainable farming businesses, and on average, increase their income through irrigation alone from $150 - $850 each year – nearly a 500% increase. Additionally, they increase their total net-annual farm income by over 400% in just 36 months. By giving today, you are giving a farming family the opportunity to transform their lives.
