Early starts, long days, hard physical work—being a farmer is no walk in the park. So, since 2000, we’ve partnered with Gadjah Mada University to lend a hand to local soy bean farmers through technical assistance and financing. Together, we run education programmes that give farmers planting advice, teach them how to increase yields, and improve quality and efficiency. With your support we’ve reached over 10,500 smallholder farmers! And our separate “Women’s Empowerment” programme has brought a little fempowerment to soy bean farming, helping over 3,000 women farmers.
