report emerge poverty free

emerge poverty free is really excited to see the SG1 up and running in Eldoret, Kenya. SG1 is short for ‘solar grow 1’, which is an amazing fully self-contained agricultural unit. Invented by our partner Boundless Horizons, the SG1 is a solar powered mobile germination factory capable of producing vast numbers of seedlings for a wide variety of crops, far faster than traditional farming methods.

emerge poverty free is sending a revolutionary agricultural system to Eldorat in Kenya. Produced by Kent Science Park-based company Boundless Horizons, the Solar Grow 1 (SG1) system will help improve food security in the town.

During last year’s food crisis in East Africa, food shortages caused prices to skyrocket across the region. Eldorat is a relatively fertile place but many people, especially those living in poverty, faced a struggle to survive.

report emerge poverty free

The terrible food crisis in the Horn of Africa that has been growing for the last 6 months is worsening by the day.

The drought that has effected Somalia and Ethiopia is causing starvation and misery to people already suffering greatly from poverty. An estimated 150,000 refugees have fled to camps in Dolo Ado on the border of Kenya and Ethiopia and Dadaab, also in Kenya. But the crisis is far reaching, Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan have chronic food shortages as well.
