Self-sufficiency Pays Dividends
Undernourishment is prevalent in Tanzania, due to the poor food supply. Forty-three percent of children are stunted according to the World Bank. Many have serious vitamin deficiencies and health problems. A host of problems hinder the productive farming of nutritious foods. Many families barely get by, farming small plots of land with poor soil and water, among other challenges.
International efforts toward sustainable farming have helped to increase food production, reduce costs, save lives, and generate a revenue source, reducing poverty over the long term. Our approach is based on:
- Adopting sustainable agricultural practices to grow more with less land, water, fertilizer, and other costs, minimizing environmental impact
- Sharing sustainable farming practices with the community so they may benefit on their own farms.
