Projects executed by SoilCares Foundation

SoilCares Foundation executes several projects to reach as many smallholder farmers as possible. Here we present 2 of our projects: the Scanning for Success project and the Food for All project. 

Scanning for Success project

The Scanning for Success project started in June 2016, sponsored by Rabobank Foundation to introduce 150 SoilCares soil Scanners. The project aims to reach 75, 000 smallholder farmers with soil testing by implementing the first soil Scanners in Kenya.

Project partners are offered the option to use 5 Scanners for a training fee of €500,- per Scanner for 1 year. After this year the partner may decide to buy the Scanner or return the Scanner to SoilCares (final price depending on the number of scans reached). For more information about the project, please download the brochure here

Food 4 All Project Kenya

The Food4All project is coordinated by Solidaridad and sponsored by FDOV. The project has the objective to improve the livelihoods and resilience of households through improving access and availability of good food and livestock products, thereby reducing food and nutrition insecurity in the Eastern region of Kenya. 

Training of trainers

Within the Food4All project SoilCares Foundation is providing trainings to 500 trainers (Training of Trainers), that will in their turn train 2000 promoter farmers. In the end, 47000 farmers will be reached and will see their knowledge on sustainable soil management increased. SoilCares’ services will also be made available through collaboration with MeruGreens.
