KickStart International helps small farmers grow beyond barely feeding themselves to growing and selling surplus crops.
Over 90% of sub-Saharan Africa's smallholder farmers have only rainfall to water the small plots that provide both their food and income.
Simple, affordable irrigation pumps help farmers grow better crops year-round, transforming family farms into profitable small businesses.
KickStart constantly develops, analyzes, and tests multiple designs for its irrigation pumps to ensure that each model improves on the one before.
KickStart's manual MoneyMaker pumps have lifted 1.2 million people out of poverty by creating 250,000 successful farming businesses that increase household income an average 400%.
KickStart’s Kenya-based Innovation Hub pioneers new irrigation solutions to be replicated across its 16 priority countries in Africa. Current projects include an innovative solar-powered pump and the ultra-low-cost, high-efficiency manual Starter Pump.
Irrigation empowers farmers to end their dependence on unreliable rainfall, grow more crops, start highly profitable businesses, secure their food needs and livelihoods, and take a major step out of poverty.
