About Tanager

Tanager is an international nonprofit that brings people together to co-create economic and social opportunities that change lives. The Tanager name and logo speak directly to finding and using the right tools in pursuit of that goal. Originally established as Agribusiness Systems International (ASI) in 1993 as an affiliate of ACDI/VOCA, we have been making agriculture work better for people. We offer a focused and diligent team of locally based experts and international advisors who work with our partners to reach common goals. On our 25th anniversary, we changed our name to Tanager, to reflect how markets around the world are constantly evolving, and so are we.

Project Information

The Impacting Gender & Nutrition through Innovative Technical Exchange in Agriculture (IGNITE) mechanism is a five-year investment funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by Tanager to improve household nutrition and women’s empowerment by strengthening African institutions’ ability to integrate nutrition and gender into their way of doing business and their agriculture interventions. IGNITE works with African institutions to design, implement, and evaluate nutrition-sensitive and gender integrated agriculture interventions. IGNITE also strengthens the ability of African institutions to incorporate nutrition and gender equality into their policy priorities and business practices—their way of doing business. Based on the interventions implemented by IGNITE clients, IGNITE identifies key mechanisms and drivers of demand for the scale up and replication of nutrition-sensitive and gender integrated interventions. IGNITE activities are targeted in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania. Clients include NGOs, private sector companies, and government bodies working in agriculture.
