Billion people affected by malnutrition

Effishent innovates in Hydroponics to end malnutrition in rural areas of our planet. We empower locals to become entrepreneurs themselves and build up their own Hydroponic-Business.

The DetailsBenefits of Hydroponics

  • Significantly Less Resources Needed

    A Hydroponic System is used for growing leafy greens and vegetables. The biggest advantage of this farming method is that it requires only a single application of fertilizer and water.

  • Cultivation Of Nutritious Plants

    Since the Hydroponic System is not dependant on the fertility of the soil, the system allows us to cultivate a number of highly nutritious plants all over the year.

  • Double The Output

    Our innovate Hydroponic System is efficient and sustainable netting about double the output compared to normal farming area.

The social business conceptEmpowerment.

Effishent works in close cooperation with social institutions in our target regions all around the world. In Togo, we cooperate with the Scantogo Group for several years now. Usually, our social partner pays the initial investment to buy all the components required to build an Hydroponics system. If needed, Effishent supports the partner by offering a credit which is then paid back within a short period of time. Next, we select and train a local in cooperation with our social partner on site. This motivated individual becomes an Hydroponeur – an expert entrepreneur in our customized hydroponic technology. The Hydroponeur is now in charge of building the system, maintaining it and harvesting its crop yield. The yield is partly passed forward to people in need and partly sold on local markets to refinance the initial investment. In Togo, our target communities are the local villages around the Scantogo Cement Factory. We strongly believe that taking this entrepreneurial action is essential for making a change in an effective and sustainable way.

OutlookWorldwide network. Local impact.

With Kokougan and Fidèle, we already have two trained people who care for the system in Togo. We also established a cooperation with the team of Enactus Frankfurt to feed fly larves to the fish. The fish do accept this nutrition and we are further increasing the capabilities of producing our own fish food. We did not stop to learn and see a keen future possibility for the aquaponics project in the production of Artemisia Annua Anamed. This natural remedy is able to cure malaria and we can proudly say that our experiment was successful and we heavily stocked up the Artemisia inventory. The next step is that the Aquaponeur Kokougan sets up the next system on his own. The first system is up and running, we have skilled locals and know all suppliers. What we need is the initial investment for the second system. This investment includes all material, set up and running costs up to the first harvest. After that point, all running costs are paid by the system itself. The system is sized to provide sustainable vegetable nutrition packages for Kopeme Groups – all year round!
