WHY

ORGANIC FARMING?

Organic food is known to be expensive in western countries. However, in the developing world, it has been shown severally to be the most affordable way of producing food. And as if this wasn’t enough, it also regenerates soils and the environment at large.

We foster the use of local and free resources to improve the self-sufficiency of our beneficiaries. We’ve been practicing for 7 years but we have launched in 2022 a farmers’ training program aiming to increase their self-reliance.

Despite all human achievements, we owe our existence to a few inches of fertile soil and the fact that it rains.
