We equip impoverished farmers and families with the skills, tools and seeds to produce life-sustaining crops through the agricultural work we conduct throughout the world. Each year, tens of thousands of meals are harvested for our children’s feeding work and income is generated for farmers and their families so children are fed and cared for.
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 Initiative is being piloted in Haiti where farmers lost the knowledge of adequate farming after years of food aid being shipped into the country. 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 Initiative we’re also educating schools, churches and orphanages in countries like the Philippines and the Dominican Republic, how to start and maintain urban gardens.
