We’re Growing Hope Globally!

More than 820 million people in this world do not have enough to eat.
4 out of 5 of the world’s poor live in rural areas and depend on farming to feed their families.
We believe in a world of plenty, no person should go hungry.

  • Lasting Impact

    We help subsistence farmers grow their own food and earn an income. When people have the tools and training to take charge of their futures, positive change not only happens — it lasts.
