According to the 2023 Outcome Impact Case Report, the Pan-Africa Bean Research Alliance (PABRA) has facilitated the release of over 650 new bean varieties, in 31 African countries, which have reached more than 42.7 million farmers (58% of whom are women), thus significantly improving nutrition, health, food security and economic status. More than 275,000 school-age children (51% girls) in Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, and Zimbabwe now regularly enjoy high-iron beans in school feeding programs. In addition, more than 5 million households in 10 African countries have seen a 30% increase in household income.

PABRA has responded to the increasing demand for improved nutrition. For over 26 years, it have gained worldwide recognition for its work in Africa, attracting partnerships with governments, research institutions, and public and private sector partners, helping to develop and disseminate nutrient-rich bean varieties.
