Help farmers leave poverty behind for good.


“We only ate one meal a day for 9 months.”

In the Dodoma region of Tanzania, many farmers struggle to make ends meet. With only one rainy season a year, a drought often means a desperate fight for survival. With little food, families are forced to reduce their meals and don’t have anything to sell. Making it impossible to pay for school fees, medicine, or farming equipment.

A few years ago, this was Donald and Sabrina’s reality. They remember how they would go from one year to the next, unsure of how they would provide for themselves and their 5 children. No matter how hard they tried… due to poor soil, sparse rainfall, and small plots of land it was never was enough. They weren’t alone. Tens of thousands of Tanzanians face this reality; often surviving on less than $1 per day.

But then, with the support of people like you, their whole lives were turned around.

Donald and Sabrina were able to attend a two-year training program which taught them simple techniques to improve their yields. No tillage agriculture, mulching, and smart crop rotation which were easy to implement.

“At first we were skeptical, but decided to do a trial plot. After a year the plot almost had double the yield than the rest of our fields!”

As a member of the village council and a natural leader, Donald couldn’t wait to share this news with others in his community. Today he is teaching others how they can also increase their yields 2X to 3X using these farming techniques.

We need your help to train 700 more families in desperate need

Although Donald, Sabrina and their family now have enough to eat there are still other communities who are in desperate need of this training.

Over the past four years, we’ve trained approximately 3,300 families grow more food so that can provide for their needs and not rely on outside help. But we are still short of our goal of 4,000.

Through your donation, we will impact over 2,800 individuals to be freed from poverty using their own God-given skills and potential.
