A Farming Impact Beyond the United States

2/13/2020

Nobis Agri Science is passionate about supporting our community and the organizations that make a difference. Our featured organization this week is Growing Hope Globally. We have been proud supporters of this organization for many years and hope to inform others so that they too can learn and support this impactful non-profit.

Growing Hope Globally is a non-profit organization that’s mission is responding to the hunger of developing countries with the help of rural communities in the US. This provides the abilities for these countries to further agriculture and hopefully, end hunger. The company envisions the day where all people across the world have enough to eat and that the resources around them lead to healthy, hopeful, and productive lives.

Growing Hope reaches communities in developing countries by providing the people of these countries with agricultural training and tools they will need to be successful. There is various training on farming, nutrition, and marketing to help “multi-purpose farmers” across underprivileged areas. 

Since their launch in 1999, Growing Hope Funded Programs have reached two million people! These two million people have experienced improvement with food security in their areas. They are proud to be celebrating 20 years working to reduce world hunger, and we are happy to support them as they continue to touch the lives of many.

Here a just a few of the many stories of the people and lives that are being impacted by this organization.

In the Kenya Tigania Program, a farmer named John has recently improved his production and productivity at his plant. Before he was provided with training and knowledge from the program in place in Kenya, he primarily depended on rain-fed agriculture even with the persistent droughts. He eventually implemented a drip irrigation system that has completely changed the way he farms.

John says, “Thanks to mulching and drip irrigation, I water twice a week instead of every day. The
amount of work I have to do has gone down overall, but my results are better. I am happy and hope to
expand my farm operations.’’

Another story comes from a woman and her family in the Bangladesh Kendua Program. Salma, a mother of five, primarily depending on her husband’s production of rice for their family’s meals, finally established her own vegetable garden to help feed her family. Since then, she has been very successful with the help of training to further her understanding in vegetable and poultry farming and production. Says Salma, “I used to have no idea about good nutrition or its sources. Now I’ve learned how we can
get our nutrition from kitchen gardening and chickens, and if we grow more vegetables or raise more
poultry we can earn money to meet other family needs.” She has a plan to establish a sustainable
poultry farm as a business.

Nobis Agri Science is proud to know the impact this organization is making within the agricultural field and its emphasis the health and wellness of human beings on this earth!
