Sustainable Livelihoods

Sustainable Livelihoods

More than 1 billion people around the world do not have enough to eat. This crisis is so detrimental that it kills more people than those killed by AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. In stark contrast, around 1.5 billion people in the Western world are classified as overweight, around a third of whom are obese. The situation is such that the efforts are a serious challenge in trying to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals on eradicating extreme poverty and hunger.

“Agriculture is the main source of livelihood for the majority of crisis‑affected populations,”

Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.

Often it is basic things that have a big impact. Lack of funds mean that farmers are unable to cultivate lands without vital tools and seeds.We believe that empowering local communities and especially women, that we can really address the root causes of food insecurity and malnutrition. By providing agricultural contributions such as seeds, tools, fertilisers and other inputs for crop farming, livestock restocking, animal feed, veterinary care, training in farming best practices and new approaches to food production, communities will be given the chance to prosper.

Climate change, conflict and natural disasters are having a deep impact around the world and are posing major challenges to the poor farmers. Livelihoods are being disrupted and access to income generating projects re being severely reduced. it is imperative to educate those communities who rely on farming and livestock and help build resilience.

We believe that local knowledge combined with expert knowledge will provide a platform for the poor farmers to thrive on. Our Drought proof crop initiative coupled with tree plantations is having a profound effect on communities and the environment.

We are committed to promoting other sustainable initiatives also in a bid to allow the people to provide for themselves. Through interventions such as providing farming tools and seeds, small shops, sewing machines and providing livestock, the poor and needy have been given the opportunity to maintain dignity in an effort to provide for themselves.

It is initiatives like this that can have life long impact for those people in need allowing communities to work hard and prosper.

Please donate today towards our Sustainable Livelihoods general fund to provide the needy the opportunity to provide for themselves.
