YOU are empowering YOUR grandmothers to feed their families!
Maria is 67 years old and raising five orphaned grandchildren. The eldest is 14 and the youngest is four years old.
She joined her Granny Group in 2007. Her Granny Group sent three of their members to Trainer of Trainers to learn skills to bring back to their group. Because of this, Maria and the other grandmother in her group were given valuable training in many different areas.
Maria told us that she learned how to improve her farming techniques from her fellow grandmothers. Maria also received a garden hoe to help her tend to her fields. Maria said through a translator, "My grandchildren look healthy because they have enough food."
Thousands of grandmothers like Maria are better able to care for their grandchildren and keep them healthy because of what YOU have given them.
