Teaching Farmers Earth-friendly Solutions to Solving Hunger and Poverty
The natural environment plays a huge role on the health and welfare of people who rely on it as their sole source of income and food. This is the case for many across the globe who live in remote villages with little access to outside markets. They depend on the land to provide them with enough food to feed their families through the year and enough money so that they can afford medical care, clothing and shelter.
Due to changing climates, environmental damage from slash and burn farming, the overusage of pesticides and many other causes, people who depend on the land for their livelihoods are suffering. World Neighbors recognizes that many farmers and families simply do not understand the causes of their troubles and need help in identifying ways to improve their existing resources.
