The world's food security challenges and the urgent need to develop solutions are a constant focus for Mosaic. Through our Village Projects in Guatemala, India and seven African countries, we help overcome and end cycles of extreme poverty, hunger and disease by helping small-holder farmers become more productive and self-sufficient through modern sustainable agriculture.

Through our partnership with Millennium Promise in sub-Saharan Africa, we have impacted the lives of more than 250,000 villagers in fiscal 2011 by donating 2,600 tonnes of crop nutrients. In India and Guatemala, Mosaic agronomists partner with small-holder farmers and teach them about the sustainable use of crop nutrients. Across the programs, yields have increased on average by three to five times over traditional farmer practice, moving these farm families from subsistence to surplus.

The long-term health of our local communities is a vital component of our sustainability strategy. Through The Mosaic Company Foundation and the Mosaic Institute in Brazil, along with our corporate giving program and Mosaic Volunteers, we are committed to investing in our local communities.


Mosaic gave back to the community at record levels in fiscal 2011 including $5.5 million to the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society, supporting the development of an emergency medical helicopter service in Saskatchewan, Canada.
