Field Stories

Atop a rocky hillside lives Sundra Paharia, his wife and their six children. For years Sundra struggled to grow enough food to feed his large family. Much of his land in the village of Churidari consist of rocky hillsides that make farming incredibly difficult. Sundra and his family are a part of the Malto people, an ethnic minority group that faces extreme levels of poverty in remote regions of India. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged their community and restrictions have cut off trading with other parts of the country.
Sixty Ethiopian farmers stood and listened intently as Asnakech shared her experience. They were learning from her, a woman, on how they too could dramatically increase their yield. Three years ago this scene would have never even crossed Asnakech’s mind. Three years ago this scene would have never even crossed Asnakech’s mind. “I could only feed my family for three months from my farm, for the remaining nine months, I used to suffer."
When the Ebola virus hit Kadijah’s village, many children had lost their parents and family members. Kadijah and her husband tried to do everything they could for the community, including adopting six orphaned children. Thanks to an innovative farming program offered by a local church, the family is rising above hunger and extreme poverty.

The solution to poverty is more than physical, it’s spiritual. Instead of handouts, you will be partnering with local churches to permanently lift families out of poverty. Will you join us?
