Make an impact this June by improving food security for vulnerable families in developing countries
This is your opportunity to make a difference in the lives of families living in slums in developing countries who are struggling to provide food for their families.
This campaign will focus on establishing nutritional vegetable gardens at schools and in communities while also teaching valuable skills and knowledge in vegetable gardening and food nutrition.
A bit of context
The COVID-19 virus is having a huge impact across the planet, particularly in our most impoverished communities, who live from day-to-day. Many of the urban poor are migrants or refugees who rely on day-labouring to support their basic needs.
The war in Ukraine is having a global impact on food supply and price, compounding the suffering of people living in slums.
Even though these families can be supported with food distribution, donor funds are very limited, food prices are increasing and availability of food is reducing.
We are seeking to empower people to grow their own food simply and sustainably during this critical time. Our programs increase access to a constant supply of nutritious food. We have trusted partners in many countries who need support to quickly establish food gardens to meet the needs of those who have lost their livelihoods or cannot afford to buy food.
In urban areas, although land for food production is very scarce, even in slums, there are vacant blocks and small areas that can be used for vegetable cultivation. We tailor solutions for individual communities, to ensure they are easy to adopt right away and able to be maintained into the future.
We rent available land and set up facilities required to grow food. We provide tanks & drums for water storage and access to seeds, teaching people how to save seeds from their harvest for distribution to others.
Your donation will help us:
- Provide garden tools, seeds & equipment needed to start a vegetable garden
- Provide fencing
- Provide water tanks, irrigation equipment & water
- Help pay for land rent
- Give financial support until the gardens start producing
- Provide training & agricultural advice
