WEFARM & CAFÉDIRECT

The internet for people without the internet

For the past 18 months we have been designing an exciting new platform that enables peer-to-peer information exchange between smallholder farmers around the world, using basic mobile phones.

In collaboration with our client, Manifesto and Conker Group, a communication platform has been developed, along with a fully-responsive web application, that enables knowledge sharing between farmers, translation of content by volunteers, and admin management by the WeFarm team.

After seven sprints, and end-to-end testing in the Nandi Hills, Kenya, WeFarm launched late in 2014. WeFarm is a pioneering social enterprise, originally created by Cafédirect Producers’ Foundation (CPF), a UK-registered charity, who works with smallholder tea, coffee and cocoa farmers and their organisations.

WeFarm earned serious kudos in 2014, picking up a Google Impact Award, as well as being named amongst the 2014 Nominet Trust 100 (NT100).
