Charles, a father of four, was selected by his peers to become one of Grameen Foundation’s Community Knowledge Workers (CKWs) in 2010. With the smartphone and training provided by Grameen Foundation, he has improved his coffee harvest. He’s also added bananas, cabbage, goats and pigs to his farm.
As a CKW, Charles helps his neighbors by sharing farming information that he accesses on his smartphone. He has connected hundreds of other farmers to vital farming advice.
