If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.African proverb
HarvestPlus has a goal of reaching a billion people with biofortified crops by the year 2030. We are not in this alone. In order to reach this goal, we have joined forces with a global coalition of partners, donors, collaborators, and local partners that include host country government agencies, NGOs, international organizations and the private sector. Each of our partners play an important role in reaching poor rural populations with more nutrient-rich crops for production and consumption.
The history of HarvestPlus demonstrates the power of collaboration. Beginning when HarvestPlus founder Howarth Bouis met with a group of scientists at Cornell University's Plant, Soil, and Nutrition Laboratory, we have worked to harness the energy of scientists across disciplines, governments, international organizations, NGOs, and the private sector. Hidden hunger is a global problem and requires the interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral team of experts from the public and private sectors resolutely working together to tackle this problem and eliminate hidden hunger.
