Our Vision:Health and Food Security For All
Our Target is the 50 Poorest Countries in the World.
The Organics 4 Orphans initiative seeks to address extreme poverty by helping African communities move from food reliance into conditions of self-sufficiency – even into surplus. We’re doing this by equipping small-scale farmers with the resources and knowledge to farm organically and productively, and then asking those farmers to help the orphans in their communities. By alleviating the strain of food insecurity in poor, rural areas, Organics 4 Orphans creates capacity in those communities to care for orphans, the most vulnerable of the extreme poor.
Our strategies center on rural farming communities, because we believe Africa's future depends on its ability to transform agriculture.
Agriculture sounds simple enough – people have been farming for millennia after all. But in Africa the constraints to farming are unique. By addressing these constraints, Organics 4 Orphans will help the extremely poor in Africa lift themselves to the next rung of development, creating a brighter future for the orphans in their communities.
Because organic agriculture projects are central to our strategy, we're also contributing to a greener environment for orphans to inherit.
Our program is low-cost, community-based and sustainable.
