Farmers help farmers
Farming, harvesting, raising animals and survival are more than just a game for many people. Lookout Games is proud to announce its project to support the tribal people of the Arbore, in Southern Ethiopia (read more about the Arbore people here — text in German). Lookout Games donates a portion of the proceeds from each Agricola game that is sold to the project.
The project is co-ordinated by Anthropologists and Africa researchers Christina Gabbert and Felix Girke. It offers both short-term emergency relief and longer-term assistance in establishing and supporting local agricultural activities.
There are three main focus areas: (read more about the project here — text in German)
* Fields — purchasing water pumps for irrigations
* Animals — helping families to build small herds of cattle
* Education and training (Occupations) — veterinary medicine, human medicine and agriculture.
Now you too can contribute to the project, either through our fundraiser activities at the Essen game fair or directly:
