Dates: May 16 – July 15, 2023
Description from Indiegogo: “In partnership with Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Tanzania, US-based nonprofit Remineralize the Earth (RTE) is raising funds to introduce locally-sourced, mineral-rich volcanic, basalt, rock dust and biochar to soils in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania to improve soil fertility, crop yields, and income for subsistence farmers and their families.”
“With initial funding of $8,000 and continued guidance by experts and pioneers in remineralization, Blessing will begin trials with farming communities near Miwaleni Springs in the Kilimanjaro region. The team will collaborate with local farmers to incorporate Rutubisha into their existing farming techniques with manure compost and biochar, leverage local knowledge of the land, climate and ecosystem, and hone Rutubisha mixes for healthy soils, high crop yields and nutritious crops. Learnings from this pilot in Miwaleni Springs in the Kilimanjaro region will be key to honing the best mixes and techniques for other regions across Tanzania.”

Join Us to Address Food Security in Kilimanjaro
The Kilimanjaro Project supplies local small-scale farmers with "Rutubisha" (an all-natural fertilizer with rock dust, biochar, and compost manure), and trains them to grow healthy crops and nutrient-dense foods, leading to increased income, better lives, more resilient communities, healthier people, and food security now and in the future.
Every bit helps, even $10 can help reach our goals, and a contribution of $100 is enough to sponsor a small-scale farmer and their family for 2-3 years.
Donate today to create economic opportunities and food security for small farmers in Tanzania!
