IDE UK enables poor family farmers across Africa and Asia to access the tools and knowledge they need to lift themselves out of poverty.
IDE UK has a mission to create income and livelihoods for the rural poor.
We design and develop low-cost products, such as irrigation technologies, for poor farmers living on less than 60p a day. We make links with local manufacturers and dealers who make and sell these products to farmers at an affordable price which they can repay in one growing season. These products help poor farming families to dramatically improve their productivity and move from living hand to mouth to selling surplus produce at local markets for a good price. The impact of our work is felt quickly. A more secure income leads to better nutrition and improved health. It also means that poor farmers can start to invest in their family’s future by sending their children to school, often for the first time.
