FARM STEW International's mission is to improve the health and well being of rural, small farm families throughout the world.
Below are our main objectives:
"Decrease stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age", and increase dietary diversity in order to "address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons" per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #2.2
Establish Home Gardens
Establish kitchen gardens and conservation agriculture by training and equipping subsistence farm families seeking to "end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants to safe, nutritious and sufficient food year," per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal#2.1
Increase Food Availability
Increase simple, domestic processing locally available and affordable plant-based foods to maximize nutrient value, particularly soybeans, maize, fruits and vegetables; per the e UN's Sustainable Development Goal#2.4
Develop Small Business
Develop entrepreneurial skills for Income Generating Activities (IGA) with agricultural products, per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #8.
"Achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations" per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal#6
FARM STEW's teams promote a recipe for abundant life and respect the families of villagers in remote and impoverished regions where hunger is most prevalent. We believe these same families could be some of the most healthy people in the world with abundant access to homegrown food, fresh air, sunshine, clean water and strong community ties. We seek to meet these families where they are at and encourage choices that will contribute to that vision.
