Four Days Away from CFGB Sunday!

Can you imagine the upheaval of being forced to leave everything familiar—friends, family, and all that gives you comfort—for a completely foreign environment? And even though years pass, you are still unable to return home. Before you were forced to move you had a steady income and were able to provide for your family. Now you don’t know if you’ll even have enough for your next meal.

Three Weeks Until CFGB Sunday!

This week we travel 12,000 km to Nazaret, a community in north-eastern Nicaragua. Lucia Méndez, a mother of four, is part of World Renew’s food security project in Nazaret, in partnership with Accion Médica Cristiana (AMC) and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Through this project, Lucia is learning how to rotate crops, make better use of her land, and prepare her own organic fertilizers, compost and pesticides.

Furthermore, in 2016, the sun relentlessly baked down on the remaining seeds which were harvested from the previous year. This has totally wiped out any possibility of growing food.

The Kindness of Small-Scale Farmers in Kenya

The smells of charcoal fires, the welcoming taste of African tea, and the feel of red dust coating her feet are memories, Rebecca Warren says, that she brings back from this summer’s Kenya Learning Tour.Warren also recalls development workers riding on motorcycles across rutted roads from one remote farm to the next, sharing agricultural techniques and training to help make the lives of the community better, one farmer at a time.
