Read about CTI's Pearl Millet Tools project in Senegal

Pearl millet, one of the most extensively cultivated cereals in the world and a key staple crop in the African Sahel region, is largely processed by women who lack mechanized tools. With support from Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation, Compatible Technology International (CTI) - a nonprofit that designs and distributes tools in collaboration with small farmers and their communities to improve food and water security in developing countries-introduced its pearl millet tools in Senegal in 2013. The tools reduce women's labor and increase their ability to produce high-quality pearl millet, providing the opportunity to improve nutrition and income.
