Stories of Change

Real change for real people. You are helping transform the lives of people all over the world. 

Three years ago, Asnakech could only feed her family for 3 months a year from her farm, for the remaining 9 months, they used to suffer. Without food and money, her children eventually dropped out of school.

But then she had the opportunity to be trained in new farming skills which transformed her life. Today, she grows 10 TIMES the amount of food. “When I think about the change in my life, overcoming struggles, feeding my children… this makes me happy.” Asnakech says.
