Increasing yields, restoring the land, & breaking the yoke of poverty!
We equip African farmers with the knowledge to transform their current agriculture systems in a way that lifts people up and that equips and enables the poor to feed themselves, generate income, and break the yoke of poverty forever.
We just finished up with an amazing training in Mairowa with a group of Maasai widows. These ladies were so excited to recieve what we had to offer them...knowledge that will transform their lives, family and community forever.
Maasai widows have a hard within the Maasai culture. Once a widow always a widow. They are never allowed to remary again. The two youngest in the group were 25 yrs of age. However, before they felt all alone. But now they meet as a group on a regular basis learning together, praying together & encouraging one another. They were an inspiration to me. May God bless them and the work of their hands.
Hand up - not hand out
Seeds of Change East Africa is about equipping rural African farmers with the knowledge and skills needed to produce high crop yields in drought conditions.
Rural families like Philemon pictured above no longer have to depend on other NGO and government handouts.
Is food aid helping?
Billions of dollars are being poured into Africa for food relief every year. When we see the high figures and the amount of aid streaming in, one can’t help but wonder “is it making a difference?” Or are we just perpetuating the dependency syndrome?
