Home Food Garden - Nice success story of Leap

Leab is a 58-year old widow who was earning USD$1.25 a day making rattan baskets. The pandemic wiped out her only source of income, causing immense financial stress and food insecurity.

 In early 2021, our team was made aware of Leab’s situation through the Village Chief. They provided her with an emergency food pack, then in May, with funding from the Goodridge Foundation, Leab partook in the Home Food Garden Project.

 Leab’s land is quite small but because her Village Chief loaned his own unused land to grow a large quantity of vegetables, Leab could get a second chance.

 Leab sells her surplus vegetables to a wholesaler in her village, and has doubled her pre-pandemic income.

 Through attending the program, I received farming materials, fertilizer, and five types of seeds including salad, sponge gourd, wax gourd, winter melon and mustard green. I also gained new knowledge on growing vegetables, how to make compost fertilizer and natural pesticide. I am so happy and grateful for your support because now I can feed myself, earn money to pay my debts and support my family."

We plan to support 300 more families in 2022, so please join with us to help these families increase income and food production.

Thank you so much!
