HOPE IN EVERY HARVEST

______________________

Through our Agriculture program, Convoy of Hope equips vulnerable farmers and families with the skills, tools, and seeds they need to produce life-sustaining crops. Tens of thousands of meals are harvested each year for our Children’s Feeding program, which simultaneously generates income for local farmers.

WHY AGRICULTURE?

Food security is crucial for communities and families around the world. When we help farmers increase the food security of their communities and families, we can play a part in transforming the lives of countless people by lifting them out of dependency.

Our Agriculture program was piloted in Haiti, where farmers didn’t have access to best management practices. After being trained in agronomy, farmers in the program now grow their own crops and help sustain our children’s feeding efforts in Haiti.

We’re also educating schools, churches, and orphanages around the world on how to start and maintain their own gardens.

"Recent results to be presented at the American Society of Agronomy meetings show a direct correlation between implemented agricultural education programs and an increase in farmer yield and resiliency."

OUR APPROACH

Assessment

We use the best tools available to assess the local culture, context of living environments, and the economic situation to understand the real food security needs in the local community.

Education

We educate farmers through curriculum, workshops, and local agronomist and technicians. We strive to take the best science to the farmers. As we make agronomy education available, we also increase the information flow to as many in the community as possible.

Implementation

This program strives to assist farmers in implementing the best agronomic practices in both pilot and large-scale projects.
