Global Roots

Global Roots improves the lives of orphans and disadvantaged children with support of local humanitarians from all over the world. We feel the best way to bring about positive change is to offer assistance to the humanitarians who have already taken the first step to help the children in their local community. They are our heroes and it is through them that Global Roots works to protect the world's most valuable asset, its children.
Provide Care for Afghanistan's Abandoned Children
 
We have been working in Afghanistan since the US Air Force loaned us a few helicopters to do our work in 2010. Early supply missions helped us locate and test Janagha Jaheed (JJ), our local partner in Baharak, Badakshan. Eventually we worked with JJ to lay down our first Children's Garden and chicken egg farm. Local children, including 20 children who lost their fathers to war, spend time in our garden (we have a master gardener who does the planning and hard work) and take home vegetables/eggs. project reportread updates from the field
Keeping Kenyan Kids in School!
 
We have created vegetable gardens and chicken egg farms that help keep Kenyan children in school. When local parents learn that their children can get a balanced meal at school -- they send them back. And when Kenyan school children eat a good meal at lunch -- they study better! We also provide solar lighting so that poor Kenyan school children can do their homework...and we are now supporting a woman who takes in little girls who are running away from forced marriage and FGM. project reportread updates from the field
Support Child Food Security!
 
Food security is the basis for solving so many of the problems facing the world's children. Not only does consistent nutrition resolve hunger, malnourishment and subsequent health issues, but food security can be used by extension to bolster education, expand a network of foster homes, and support medical initiatives. Global Roots is supporting children in troubled areas around the world through food security programs such as the Children's Garden Project.
