The Crisis

Hunger, disease & poverty cause tremendous suffering.


Our Projects

To successfully shape change, we continually work on the following projects.

Irene is one of 663 million people who lack access to clean water. The handpump in her village broke years ago, along with 30% of all the pumps in Africa. Now FARM STEW is providing a local source of hope for the water situation to quench their physical and spiritual thirst ($15 per person).
Tippy Taps
Simple technology like a Tippy Tap, that can provide flowing water, combined with soap or ash, can clean hands with limited waste. FARM STEW promotes Tippy Taps for all homes!
Washable Pads for Girls
Around the world many women and girls do not have access to sanitary napkins, clean private toilets, or hygienic ways to take care of their periods. We are bringing dignity to girls by training and equipping them with the tools they need.
Family Gardens
To enable rural families to be self-sustaining and provide an opportunity for business, we supply the initial seeds and tools needed to begin a garden. They do the rest with the help of our FARM STEW trainers!
Our FARM STEW trainers emphasize the principles of each of our eight ingredients in the classes we teach. Hands-on practical activities make the lessons come alive and help participants thrive!
The Crisis of


Malnutrition continues to be a leading driver of the global burden of disease.
It is responsible for almost half of all deaths of children under five years old –more than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. 

East Africa is the region in the developing world with the highest prevalence of stunting, at 35.6%, a devastating form of malnutrition that is irreversible.

In response, FARM STEW started with a simple strategy to nourish children.

Undernutrition puts children at greater risk of dying from common infections, increases the frequency and severity of such infections, and delays recovery. Women and children constitute the population with the highest vulnerability to these malnutrition issues. They often are the underlying cause of premature death. Rural children are often 45% more likely to die.

Nutritional deficiencies stem from a variety of factors including poor soils, sanitation, and low dietary diversity.  FARM STEW addresses all these factors with a focus on the first 1,000 days of life.

Little Sarah below has indications of stunting and protein deficiency.

The Crisis of


While the overall number of world’s extremely poor has been reduced in recent decades, the percentage of those living in Sub-Saharan Africa has grown from 17.4% to 27.7%.

Extreme poverty, measured at $1.90 per person per day, disproportionately affects children.
387 million, or 19.5% of the world’s children, live in extreme poverty!

"In as much as you've done it to the least of these, you've done it unto Me"
Jesus in Matthew 25:40

That's why we are there and care.
