Meet the people revolutionizing agriculture and land restoration in Africa.

A Letter From Our Founder

David Plattner

In 2017 when I learned of the systematic ecological desertification and horrific human tragedy that is now happening in the drylands of Africa, it was my call to action to lead a coalition of public private partnerships to accomplish the challenge presented to us by the United Nations and the African Union. They said that the challenge is to plant trees across the continent stretching across 7,800 kilometers and now beyond. They said it was the only way to assist the people ready to migrate for more fertile lands to work. Furthermore, The World Bank predicted that without livelihood, up to 60 million people will start a major mass migration and by 2030 this could cause total disruption to the European continent and beyond globally. I was moved and realized so much was a stake.

My sense of mission, purpose and passion is why we formed the m2e.network. Since its formation the African Union has expanded its agenda to include 35 countries or 70% of all African dry land countries. To date our deeply experienced team has expanded to include professionals that can handle the diverse agendas and strategically implement our regeneration, environmental, economic and social stability programs in all regions.

I traveled globally developing relationships with the relevant overarching governing bodies and stakeholders including the UN, the African Union, the Pan African Agency of the Great Green Wall, the African Development Bank, IFAD, The World Bank, The European Commission, UNFAO, the UNFCCC, and the Governments of Germany, France to name a few.

With this deep and relevant geo political and technical understanding and in the spirit of partnerships, we are now positioned to leverage Blockchain innovation in finance with the best agroforestry and agricultural practices and access to commercial export markets.

On December 15th, 2017 RainTrust signed a MOU with the African Union stating their endorsement for us to work as a private sector organization on the “Great Green Wall”, now expanding to 35 countries equaling 20 Trillion square meters in land mass. RanTrust is now a movement for change.

We have secured certain agreements with a number of small to large African community farming groups willing to participate in our unprecedented low interest loans and unique token inventive programs. Concurrently, we have also secured certain large scale corporation partners that are also excited to join our network, coalition and token economy and become an integral part of our value chain in buying the produce generated. Lastly, we now have associations with the largest NGO’s and implementing partners and security organizations so we can responsibly deliver what we say.

I am also very proud of our extraordinary team that not only consists of the top environmental experts but also major investment professionals and blockchain specialists that combine with our geospatial technologists and drone teams so we can see, touch and interact with every square meter we invest in. In short, we are focused, poised and armed to undertake the largest Agro Blockchain Eco-Nonmic venture.

We collectively believe that our mission will be systematically accomplished by honoring our network strengths and that under our leadership our historic ambition will be realized.

We are interactive and will take our African Agro Blockchain message on a global tour so that we meet any and all who want to participate. I hope to connect with all who are motivated to participate with RainTrust.
