Linking women from India to Zambia in South-South technology transfer

BetterWorld has developed a unique South-South technology transfer which links women in India and Zambia. Our #VayuSap elite Pongamia pinnata saplings start their journey in Southern India, where they are deleafed, desoiled and fumigated before their long trip to Zambia.
