Through our Agriculture program, Convoy of Hope equips impoverished farmers and families with the skills, tools and seeds to produce life-sustaining crops. Tens of thousands of meals are harvested each year for our Children’s Feeding program, which simultaneously generates income for local farmers.
Food security is crucial for communities and families around the world. When we help farmers increase their communities’ and families’ food security we can play a part in transforming the lives of countless people by lifting them out of dependence on others.
Our Agricultural program was piloted in Haiti where farmers do not have access to best management practices to the technology they have available. After being trained in agronomy, farmers in the program are now growing their own crops that are producing food that supplies their families and helps sustain our children’s feeding efforts in Haiti.
As part of our Agricultural program we’re also educating schools, churches and orphanages in countries like El Salvador and Nepal, how to start and maintain urban gardens.
