Here at BIOSORRA, we are driven by dual goals; to boost agricultural output while removing carbon from the atmosphere. In doing so, we tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues, such as climate change, deforestation, starvation and poverty. We want to provide solutions to these problems by helping local farmers in sub-Saharan Africa increase their yield, and capture carbon in the process. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact in all our endeavours
What We Do
Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.
One Step at a time
At BIOSORRA, we are dedicated to providing yield increases for farmers in Kenya. Currently, average yields are not at their potential, but through cooperation and community empowerment we hope to change this. We are striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Helping the Community
Climate & Socio-economical benefits
We aim to promote opportunities for smallholders and farming cooperatives. Biochar improves farmers' livelihoods and increases average food production.
Meet the goals set by the Paris Agreement
Biochar does not only increase crop yields through soil enhancement, but also sequesters carbon and reduces CO2 emission in the atmosphere. If you find our sustainability strategy in line with the vision of your company please contact us. We are able to offset your CO2 emissions.
"Out of the long list of nature’s gifts to man, none is perhaps so utterly essential to human life as soil."
