About Us

Digital Green is a development organization that empowers small holder farmers to lift themselves out of poverty by harnessing the collective power of technology and grassroots-level partnerships.

We believe that when farmers have the tools they need to connect with one another, they’re far more likely to apply what they’ve learned on their farms and in their households –improving their own livelihoods and those of others in their community, in a manner that’s nutrition-sensitive, climate-resilient, and inclusive.Since day one, our deeply committed, curious and collaborative team has been challenged and inspired. We’ve tried and failed and tried again, and have ultimately become leaders in using technology for global development.

Our Journey

Since spinning off from Microsoft Research in 2008, we have worked with several of the State Rural Livelihood Missions in over 15,200 villages across India, touching the lives of over 1.9 million small holder farmers, nearly 90% of them women.

Over the years we pioneered, tested and successfully scaled our digital approach to agricultural extension and brought the effectiveness into public health extension as well
