While we provided food to meet short-term needs, a long-term solution was our goal. We are now establishing a farming environment and program to teach families to grow their own food.
Future Farmers of Mozambique Program
60% of Mozambicans subsist on under $2.00 per day. Given the costs of providing life’s necessities, very little is left to buy food. Many families in our communities get by on a single small meal per day — sometimes going without altogether.
The FFM (Future Farmers of Mozambique) program is designed to help teach the women and girls in our community the skills necessary to help them get jobs in commercial agriculture and to help them grow their own food. During the years they are in the program, they also learn important leadership skills that will help them transform their community.
