SunBarter and the F&BKP
During the celebration of WOTRO’s 50th anniversary in October 2014, the conference audience voted the innovative solution “Back to the basics: establishing a trade by barter food network with dried fruits and vegetables in Nigeria” as the winning project of the Battle of Ideas. The team won a prize of €1,500 per team member. Shortly after, they met with the F&BKP to discuss the different options of how to use the total amount of €6,000 within the scope of their proposal.
The SunBarter project team consists of three Msc graduates with diverse backgrounds and skills that serve the project’s elements. The SunBarter’s target is to create pilot projects, to assert the actual impact and feasibility of the idea across selected locations. Countries currently targeted for the implementation of the pilot are Nigeria and Guatemala.
