afarThis Sunday, April 22nd, the world will come together in celebration of Earth – the planet every one of us so fondly calls ‘home’. Please join us in celebrating this year’s Earth Day by doing your part to make sure that our planet stays clean and beautiful for the generations to come.

riceEvery day, Bread and Water for Africa® works with its partner programs to give back to the environment. Whether we are training farmers in modern farming techniques through the YETEEM Agro-Pastoral Development Project in Ethiopia, or donating seeds to farms across Sierra Leone through the Faith Healing Development Program, we plant sprouts of hope throughout communities in great need.

Through self-sufficient community farms, like the Baraka Farm in Eldoret, Kenya, we also educate future generations about agriculture and ways they can create sustainable positive change in a community with limited resources by providing local farmers with free farming demonstrations.

On April 22nd, help Bread and Water for Africa® and our partner communities throughout Africa celebrate Earth Day by actively giving back to the environment. baraka

As President Obama urged Americans, so we urge everyone across the world, in every walk of life, “to take action – in your home or your community; at your school or your business – to improve our environment. It can be as simple as riding the bus or the subway at work, making your home more energy-efficient, or organizing your neighbors to clean up a nearby park.”

No matter where you are on Earth Day, you can do your part to give back to the planet; not only can you help out on the 22nd, but make a long-lasting resolution to improve your own relationship with the environment, lessening your carbon footprint, and giving back to your community.
