Impacts

From people to planet, we are expanding our reach to impact nations.

Re-Earth

This project uses market-creating innovations by harnessing the resources already available in Kiribati to address their need for food security and lift people out of poverty. We do this by supporting local businesses and generating jobs in farming, shipping, and managing our agricultural centers to create a multiplier effect of prosperity.

People

Cover crops are planted into the sandy soils of Kiribati where they will increase the nitrogen of the soil by 1100%. The vegetation waste then adds important organic waste, helping the process of turning the sand into soil.

Planet

The soil of Kiribati lacks Phosphorus, Potassium, and excessive amounts of organic material. These three elements can be found in pig manure! We have built mobile pig pens that will allow us to move the pigs every two weeks so that their manure can enrich their soil.

Health

These Crops need water in order to grow. Kiribati receives thousands of gallons of rainfall in large dumps. These water containment systems will be able to catch this rainfall and allocate it through drip line irrigation to each plant according to their needs.

Current Statistics

1
Agricultural Trainers

Re-Earth uses the “Train the Trainers” method in our education. We’ve already trained 23 people in our 3-phased farming method. Each of these people will train others, creating a ripple effect and impacting people all across Kiribati.

1
Meals Provided

Currently, Kiribati is struggling with food security and many people don’t know what their next meal is going to be. By creating the first commercial farm in Kiribati, we provide 17,000 servings of fresh, local vegetables in just our first year!

1
GALLONS OF WATER to THE COMMUNITY

Fresh water is a precious resource on Kiribati, and currently all rain collection systems are used for drinking water. By using advanced drip irrigation (that saves 70% more water), we are able to allocate an additional 28,760 gallons of fresh water to the community.

Local Partnerships

We have already partnered with 16 local restaurants, grocery stores, schools, and churches who are committed to buy our produce. Currently, produce in Kiribati is 3-4 times more expensive than the USA. We are providing local produce that is 1/3 of those high prices, increasing financial stability nationwide.

Education

One of our major impacts in Kiribati takes place  through our education system. We are introducing a brand new industry and teaching the people about commercial farming, something that has never been done before in Kiribati!

Through our farmers manual, video training modules, and dietary classes, we empower the people of Kiribati to take control of their own health.
