    About This Project

    Food insecurity and environmental degradation disproportionately affect the world’s poorest. Our project tackles this.

    We will develop a protocol for farmers in Burkina Faso to breed edible caterpillars, a local delicacy, year-round. Caterpillars are rich in protein, iron and zinc, have a high market value, and are a beloved food source.

    We’ve consulted many stakeholders, from the FAO to rural smallholders.

    With your help, we'll work to give people control of their food and income.

    Blast off!
