Challenge

Right now, though, hunger is a much more serious challenge than coronavirus, and guaranteed to be an issue long after the pandemic is over. After lockdown in the district of Solukhumbu, where we are working. over three dozen people have committed suicide; in the rest of Nepal, over 900 people have committed suicide, and yet we have just ten deaths from the virus so far. According to the World Food Program, an estimated 4.8 million people in Nepal were struggling with food security .

Solution

There will be 30 women in each group & Every member will receive seeds and support from agricultural experts; many of our girls from the hostel and their families are also participating. Our program is actually not a training for individuals - it is in fact a beautiful family program. Every mother or family member who participates in our farming program will take this training and education to their home and share it with everyone there, especially the children learning to grow and stop huger.

Long-Term Impact

This program will encourage 1000 women to grow their own food and feed their family. Helps over 1000 out of school children to learn and explore farming with their mother. The family will be able to sell their own food ending hunger and generating income. This program will address issues like Hunger, nutrition, organic farming, educating younger generation to grow food and seek possibilities through farming. Today's gardeners will provide tomorrows food.
