Empowering the poorest communities to end child poverty


In the urban slum communities we work with children often go hungry. We help in the following ways;

  • Teaching people urban agriculture – how to grow organic food in their backyards in containers

  • Setting up community grain banks – buying grain at harvest when prices are lowest and selling to the community at below market price throughout the year

  • Running community dairies – providing milk to the poorest in any quantity at a low price

You can help

£10 a month will provide a family with goats for fattening as well as training, feed and veterinary support.

£300 will provide support and training to a women’s urban agriculture self-help group so women can set up a small farming business and feed their children.
