Stories from the Field: Growing an Economic Revolution
The world is facing one of the largest food crises in over 70 years. Addressing hunger on this scale needs a game-changing solution. Hear from Mercy Corps Zambia team member Christabell Makokha on how we are working with small and family-run farms to disrupt the cycle of famine and poverty gripping communities worldwide.

By connecting smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa to digital financial services through their mobile phones, we are sparking increased productivity and strengthening entire communities. These farmers hold the potential not only to improve their own lives but also to help build a safer, healthier world for all. Learn how Mercy Corps is using breakthrough technology and transformative solutions to revolutionize the face of humanitarian aid.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Lecture begins at 7:00 p.m.
