Jocelyn is 8 years old and lives in a small, rural community in Nicaragua located in Central America’s “Dry Corridor.” For the last five years, erratic weather patterns like long droughts and excessive rains have devastated crops, leaving farmers and their families prone to hunger and malnutrition. Children like Jocelyn are especially vulnerable.
Together with World Renew, Jocelyn’s community is working hard to change the story of hunger. With new farming methods that allow them to grow more drought-resistant crops, farmers are able to harvest beans, vegetables, and sorghum. Now Jocelyn’s family has the means to grow more nutritious food that will help fuel her future.
