Fifty percent of the world’s population earns less than $2 a day and largely lacks access to basics like nutritious food, sanitation, potable water, education, energy, and medical care. New technologies and low-cost green innovation can bring essential services and economic opportunity but remain inaccessible to the world’s working poor communities.
The Global Fairness Initiative launched the BeFair campaign to bridge this technology gap and leverage renewable technologies to improve lives. Each year the BeFair campaign promotes a new technology that creates livelihood opportunities, addresses the innovation gap, and delivers real environmental and economic sustainability.
With your support the BeFair campaign will deliver over 5,000 Farmer Livelihood Kits to smallholder farmers in Guatemala. These kits use low-cost drip irrigation and specialized trainings to help farmers improve their nutrition and increase their incomes by as much as 50%. Your contribution of $40 will deliver one irrigation kit to an indigenous farming family in Guatemala.
