Zero Hunger

In 2015, which was the year we started operating, was the same year that the United Nations gathered in New York to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agenda is made up of 17 new sustainable development goals which will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning the historic pledge to end poverty EVERYWHERE PERMANENTLY.

At NextGen Farms we have chosen to focus on goal 2 out of the 17 sustainable development goals. We are driven strongly by sustainable development goal 2 which is #ZeroHunger. Goal 2 aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Tragically one person in every four still goes hungry in Africa, surely this isn’t acceptable.

We have chosen to focus on two elements within goal 2.
These elements are:

Sustainable Food Systems

Sustainability is at the heart of all our farming activities. Every decision we make from land preparation to land clearing and everything in between ensures that we do the least harm to the ecosystem.

Double small scale producer income and productivity

We will achieve this by sharing knowledge through our blog post and providing training to the next generation of farmers.
