To address farmers’ need for an affordable and convenient way of cultivating fodder, Heifer Bangladesh partnered with Wave Foundation, JCF and PBK to implement vertical fodder cultivation in the districts of Rajshahi and Natore.
The digitization of a value chain positions farmers closer to markets. Estimates show blockchain can reduce transaction costs in a value chain by 20-30%. As farmers explore new sources of revenue, they can register their goods and track their journey to sale.

In partnership with Access for Water Zambia, Heifer Zambia introduced treadle pumps and solar-powered community water systems, significantly reducing labor for farmers watering their crops.
