With Higher Crop Come Higher Incomes
As a result of being awarded seed capital and in-kind services from winning three prestigious national University competitions, W.E. Do Good™ has been able to produce three prototypes and successfully conduct field-testing in Ethiopia.
Representing the first step in our initiative is the socially innovative, Teff Thresher. This thresher is unique as it transforms the difficult, unsanitary and inefficient harvesting of Teff into an affordable and low-cost business opportunity. With the help of our strategic partners, it has the potential to positively impact the social and economical well being of farmers and their families across Ethiopia.
AN INSIDE LOOK
Because fuel and electricity are not always available to many Ethiopian farmers, we designed our Teff Thresher to be pedal-powered by humans. Harvested teff grain is placed in the thresher, and the pedals turn the mechanism to cleanly and efficiently separate the grain from the stalks.
