Become a Virtual Farmer
When you invest $300 in a virtual acre, you provide the seed and supplies to farm an acre of land here in Canada. A farmer in Canada will grow a crop and give the proceeds (expected to be $500) to Tearfund Canada.
When $500 is deposited into Tearfund Canada’s account at the Canadian Foodgrains bank it will be matched $3 for every dollar sent. Turning $500 into $2000!
With these funds Tearfund Canada works with church partners to provide seeds, supplies and training on conservation agriculture, to farmers struggling to make ends meet. Farmers dramatically improve their crop, giving families more to eat AND leaving some over to sell so they can improve their lives even more!
