People living in rural communities around the world depend on agriculture for survival. Because of environmental degradation, the land does not produce enough for subsistence farmers to feed their families. This affects children most acutely as poor nutrition stunts physical and mental development and makes them vulnerable to disease.
PLANT WITH PURPOSE teaches families how to increase both the quantity and variety of food in their diet through diverse planting methods. As a result, parents can give nutritious meals to their children and earn income through the sale of surplus produce. This money sends children to school, provides healthcare, and buys household necessities. Your gift helps families grow their own food and have a healthy future.
