Odetta's Farm: Progress Against Poverty and Hunger | Bill Melinda Gates Foundation



Odetta is a single mother with two children. She is also a small farmer from Rwanda, making less than $1 per day to support her family. Odetta is just one of millions of small farmers struggling against hunger and poverty.

But a year ago, Odetta’s life began to change. A partnership with the World Food Programme has helped her to expand her crop, sell more, and quadruple her income.

Helping poor farming families is the answer, the best way to fight hunger and poverty and feed a growing population.
