We go where the need for health equity and economic mobility is greatest…and we go for impact.
Our next stops are the villages of Sarazin and Boucan Carre, home to 35,000 people, half of whom are children. Seventy percent of the citizens live on less than $2 per day, and half of those are food insecure.
Hand in hand with the citizens, we’re going to launch 500 new smallholder farms in the area.
And we’ll green things up with 50,000 new trees, cared for by our local farmers.
The cost? Just $ 3,700 per family. This includes all animals, seeds, trees, tools, training, and three years of visits and administration.
The impact? Five hundred families and thousands of children will have better access to food and health, and income for their homes and growing businesses. And a large, green canopy of 50,000 fruit-bearing, carbon-filtering trees will stand where few trees stand today.
The improvements in family health and food security will be swift. Based on our past documented results, these new smallholder farmers will see an estimated $178,500 USD in collective income from their first harvest alone…with a lifetime of profitable harvests to follow.
