fostering food production by families and the community as a way to tackle food insecurity and improve nutrition ...

Whilst we provide support during the current nutritional emergency, we also seek to develop alternatives that support nutrition and food supply in the mid- and long-term. In several communities we are promoting family and community gardens, so they can produce some of their food locally. Growing vegetables, planting love, seeding a country is a team effort. 

Families, including children, participate in the planting of vegetables and breeding of chickens; the hens lay eggs, providing protein for the Community Homes in the area. The community gardens, in which young and old take part, are growing filling everyone with joy. The planting that helps provide vegetable for the children, also creates and supports community networks that, in extremely difficult circumstances, resist, fight and create. It is an educational project where food and hope are seeded, where people work together sowing a better country.
