uReach has started 3 new sustainable agricultural projects in a partnership with Convoy of Hope in Nicaragua!
Two of the projects are at local small rural public schools where the kids learn how to farm, what to grow, how to set up gardens using minimal water, and irrigation practices.
We hope that setting these up in public places that other local families can come and learn how to implement the same techniques and practices to grow their own food.
This will better their nutrition practices and provide opportunities to sell their surplus vegetables for a profit.
These same practices could be implemented in other impoverished areas around the world. Families would learn to grow their own food, they could sell the surplus, and would not have to worry about the extreme costs of water.
Eating healthy contributes to overall good health.
In Zambia More than 16 million people are at risk of malaria. It is estimated that in 2015, there were over 5 million malaria cases.
Though major achievements have been made in malaria control, the disease remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality, with one in five children under age five infected with malaria parasites.
The communities see a significant malaria season each year from November through mid-January.
Each year, dozens of students return to school with Malaria and need lifesaving treatments.
It costs only about $5 to cure Malaria.
You can give to support this life-saving medical intervention.
