Improved Livelihoods through Creative Enterprise in Sierra Leone

During last year’s harvest, as other farmers grumbled about low yield, Mustapha Fofana hoped for a bumper rice harvest. Mustapha had reason to hope: last year he harvested 180 bushels! “I used to grow just enough rice for my household to eat. But now,” he says proudly, “I can keep some and sell the surplus to pay my children’s school fees, buy school supplies, pay family medical bills, and meet other household needs.”

Learning about Creation Care in South Asia

Creation Care is an important part of World Renew’s work in several countries around the world. In Bangladesh, many of these projects deal with how humans interact with the land agriculturally.

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.
