FOUNDATIONS FOR FARMING
Africa needs a new way of farming. We believe Foundations for Farming is the answer. Instead of seeing yields decrease and costs rise with the conventional methods, we are seeing the soil health improve, yields increase while methods are basic and simple and costs remain very low. FfF uses the ways of nature to protect and preserve the soil and rain a farmer is given. This is what we want to bring to the struggling villagers.
James has a great story to prove this! Take a look…
A TOWN IMPROVING – KALULU VILLAGE
Kalulu Village was an example of a community in crisis. Karin van Meeuwen was alerted to their extreme poverty in 2015. She began working with basic cooking techniques, emergency food supplies, and predominately the “Foundations for Farming” program to improve their food production and quality. The results over the years have led to dozens of families embracing the program, giving them food security, better nutrition, and hope for additional income and health. See some results of her work…
WHY NOURISH? On average, 21,000 children die each day worldwide (14 children per minute or 7.6 million children each year) from poverty-related issues. One of the cornerstone effects of poverty is malnutrition. Malnutrition greatly reduces the effectiveness of the immune system, thus increasing the susceptibility to disease while also impairing development (UN/WHO).
HOW WE ARE SOLVING IT:
Stand as One Ministry is currently helping to provide more than 85 servings each day of baby formula, developed specifically for malnourished children. Beginning in December 2014, we partnered with a local organization, Africare Foundation, and Nicole Van Elteren, to distribute meals to vulnerable babies and toddlers.
Help us nourish by providing for a child. A recurring gift of $30.00 a month allows two children to receive a daily nutritional serving for 30 days.
Your actions are guaranteed to inspire others.
SUSTAINABLE PROTEIN PRODUCTION
In Malawi malnutrition is widespread and nearly half of all children under 5 have stunted growth and development. Soy milk is an excellent source of high-quality protein and contains essential nutrients that help our bodies grow and develop. In July 2014, Stand As One opened a soy factory and started producing non-GMO soy milk daily for 350 orphans and vulnerable children. See more…
As of January 2017 we are now:
- Feeding over 800 children each day nutritious soymilk
- employing ten Malawians to produce the soymilk and two workers to deliver by bicycle to the children
- Contracting and instructing local farmers to provide soybeans for the soy feeding program
- providing nutrition to promote wound healing to hospitalized burn patients
We invite you to STAND together with us to help end hunger one child at a time! Remember that 100% of what you donate goes to the children.
