Ways out of disease, hunger and poverty

Biovision Foundation focuses on the processing and dissemination of ecological solutions to pest and disease problems. We promote healthy farming in the long term to overcome hunger and poverty in developing regions. Grassroots projects are supported in key East African countries. Information dissemination is transnational.
