Kindly take note that we do NOT accept any unsolicited proposals or any other requests for funding. Furthermore, FCF does generally NOT support:

KickStart empowers Africa’s farmers to grow food year-round and move quickly out of poverty. To do this, we design and distribute clean energy irrigation pumps, enabling farmers to grow, harvest, and sell high-value crops independent of the rain, especially in dry “hungry” seasons, when food is scarce and prices are high. Farmers transform this oppor-tunity into profitable businesses and the lives they desire – making new investments in their futures.
