What We Do?

  • Supporting local farmers to adopt conservation practices that benefit crop yields while protecting the environment.
  • Biridi’s interest in organic farming is that it benefits the entire community from improved water supply, growth in biodiversity, and adaptability when faced with an uncertain future.
  • As the East African region heats up and continuous drought, flooding and unpredictable rainfall, there is a growing risk that emissions to the atmosphere from soil will increase, in turn causing further climate change as well as reducing our soil’s productivity
  • Producing organic fertilizer from manure or dung collected from the cattle, goats, and chickens which is an important source of nutrient for soils.
  • Biridi has created an enabling environment that links farmers and traders to new markets for high value organic commodities such as coffee, cocoa beans, vanilla, wheat and rice for both local and international exports.
