April 22 is Earth Day, an occasion that marks the global concern for the environment. The connection to the land is particularly strong in Africa, where so many of the population are directly involved in agriculture.
Bread and Water for Africa® recognizes the important role that the environment plays for our partners, many of whom incorporate sustainable farming programs as part of their missions.
These programs supply food directly to the program and generate income through selling the excess. The Baraka Farm in Eldoret, Kenya provides a sustainable source of dairy, meat, grain, and produce for the Lewa Children’s Home. The Kabwata Orphanage and Transit Centre in Zambia grows bananas for produce and funds. In addition the Faith Healing Development Organization in Sierra Leone organizes farmers to grow their food.
There are many ways to support the efforts of Bread and Water for Africa®. While donations are an immediate way to affect change in our partners’ programs, even steps in recycling and reducing pollution affect the communities we support in the long run.
Thank you again for helping Africa and her children!
