Becky Straw is the Co-Founder and Chief Adventurist of The Adventure Project, a non-profit adding venture to support social enterprises around the world. She loves travel, tech, and a good cup of coffee.
This week, the non-profit, The Adventure Project, has launched a special campaign, and is using about.me to make a difference.
One to 1,000, has a goal of enlisting 1,000 people to dedicate their about.me profiles to raise awareness about small farmers in developing countries.
Currently, 80% of the poor in Sub-Saharan Africa work as small farmers and 75% of their children go hungry.
If The Adventure Project can enlist 1,000 people by May 31st, sponsors will donate to help Kickstart, a social enterprise marketing affordable irrigation pumps to farmers in East Africa. Each pump can increase a farmer’s income 1,000%.
