Through African Christian leaders, we educate rural, African families how to live an abundant life, by using our eight ingredients. Although these families are currently the world's poorest and most hungry, we believe they can thrive with fresh, homegrown food, clean water, and strong community ties.
FARM STEW teams of indigenous workers meet these families where they are encouraging and equipping them to make choices that contribute to abundant life.
We train families in hands-on, community-based, public health practices in nutrition, sustainable agriculture, temperance, water and sanitation with the goal to achieve food security, improve health and family wellbeing.
What motivates us? Jesus said that He came that we might have life and have it abundantly. We believe that He desires that life to begin in the here and now and that He intended His followers to share life with all.
Our ultimate objective is to share the love of Jesus, with all. We do so by focusing on our eight "ingredients" of health and wellness. Everything we do is evidence based and Bible-based.

Choice to live God's way, to be disciplined and to have a positive outlook
Nightly and weekly for our bodies and also allowing the soil to rest

Moderation in good things, abstaining from things that are harmful
Providing opportunity, addressing gender, to pursue sustainability
Fresh, detoxifying & in abundance for grains, legumes, & for our bodies
Our Pilot Program
FARM STEW Uganda
Uganda possesses a unique blend of natural resources that offer tremendous potential. Fresh water is abundant, 34% of the land is arable, and its climate permits two or even three harvests per year. Yet,
- 61% of Ugandans live on less than $2 a day
- 35% of Ugandan children are malnourished, and
- Rural children have a 45% higher rate of death.
FARM STEW sees potential in Uganda. Our training equips vulnerable people with the necessary skills to improve their lives and the country as a whole.
So far, our team of 7 Ugandans has trained over 18,000 people. We reach them one family, one village at a time.
"I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10
