In fiscal 2012, The Mosaic Company, The Mosaic Company Foundation and The Mosaic Institute in Brazil invested a combined $23.6 million in food, water and local community enrichment programs. Funding also helped expand The Mosaic Villages Project, a smallholder farmer initiative started in 2008 to help families escape a cycle of hunger and poverty. Each year, the Villages Project helps farmers in India, Guatemala, Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia increase yields an average of three to five times, over traditional farming practices. Watch the " Krishi Jyoti Villages Project in India" video to learn more about smallholder farmers' crop yield successes.
