Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Agricultural Development, International Development, International Peace & Security

Mission: Our mission is to get rural people out of poverty. We do this by investing in agricultural interventions that substantially raise farmers incomes.

Programs: Wvi addresses the root causes of hunger and unemployment using a scalable development model based on self-sustaining, ecologically sound methods of agriculture. By far the most impactful intervention we have done is the building of large irrigation systems. While we continue to experiment with hundreds of seed varieties and growing techniques, most of our efforts are focused on irrigation. Key to accomplishing agricultural success is the use of ox based agriculture to increase the production capacity of individual farmers.

I have donated and seen Alex's presentations on the impact of his organization. He is a very smart fellow who has changed the lives of many people and this model has the potential to change the lives of millions.
