Ten years ago, we helped 16 Ethiopian farmers to start planting potatoes, as a means of diversifying their crops, generating income and growing a nutritious source of food for their children. These days, more than 5,000 families are involved in the programme and for 15-year-old Mehamed Ahimed Ali (pictured above), it’s been a life-changer. It's helped his family earn enough money to move into a bigger, brick-built house and pay school fees for him and his three younger siblings.
