Life Crisis

Hunger, disease & poverty cause tremendous suffering.

FARM STEW Uganda

Our Projects

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

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!
Reusable 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.
Classes
We emphasize the principles of each of our eight ingredients in the classes we teach to rural families.
The Crisis of

Hunger

The World Food Program estimates that of the world’s 795 million hungry people:
  
98% of them live in the developing world,     
75% of them live in rural areas, and    
70% of them rely on farming as their primary occupation. 

Therefore, it is safe to say that the most vulnerable families are in rural villages and they are struggling to survive on what they can grow.

Most lack basic agricultural and nutritional knowledge that would help them thrive.

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

The Crisis of

Disease

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.

The Crisis of

Poverty

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!

Jesus in Matthew 25:40

That's why we are there and care.
