From Poverty to Plenty


P2Pgarden

Planting seeds. Preparing soil. Families around the world are readying their gardens. The same tilling of soil and sowing of seeds is taking place in Tanzania under the backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Although traditional Tanzanian staple crops like corn and bananas keep children fed, 42 percent of them are stunted due to lack of nutrients. But family gardens change this statistic. The added nutrients that spinach, kale, tomatoes, and carrots provide improved health for families. Incorporating chickens, goats, and cows to the farm adds protein to diets and brings strength for tomorrow.

Let’s help families in Tanzania plant 200 gardens this spring!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by April 30.

 

Plant a Garden – $50

Sow a Plot – $25

 


 

Gardens Grow Healthy Families

The Kimaro family quickly grew from 5 to 12 as they took in their orphaned nieces and nephews. With so many mouths to feed, they weren’t sure how they could make life work. But with the training received from Plant With Purpose and their new family garden, they are making it!
