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:
