Using Israeli AgriTech to Help Africa’s Poorest Farmers

by Beuuy Sanga

The Innovation Journey (IJ) program is an opportunity for cutting-edge Israeli ag-tech companies and Ethiopian agriculture ecosystem stakeholders to engage with one another and explore partnerships for piloting innovative technologies, to bring value to Ethiopia’s agriculture market and small/medium-scale farmers.

IJ is an initiative of JDC’s TOV (Tikkun Olam Ventures) agricultural development program, which leverages Israeli technology and know-how to transform the lives of small-scale farmers in Ethiopia.

IJ will complement the expansion of the TOV program in Ethiopia as it works with additional partners, in more regions, and reaches more farmers.
