Emergency Aid for Christians attacked by IS

Give now

The Gitega Food security project helps to relieve malnutrition by providing agricultural skills to the community. The local church runs a demonstration garden to model effective farming techniques. The church also builds anti-erosion trenches and plants trees to promote soil health and biodiversity. Alongside this conservation work, they provide seedlings to local farmers so they can grow their own crops and farm enough food to eat.

Since the project began, the difference for this community has been astounding! God has blessed participants with increased crop yields that can be sold at markets for a profit. With the money earned, parents can grow their livelihoods and pay for the supplies needed to send their children to school, giving kids access to education. And as families eat more good food and their health improves, household medical expenses have dropped dramatically.

One participant, Pascal Mbaziro, said “Besides producing enough for my family, I generate an income from selling a part of my production. This allows me to balance diet, afford education for all my children, and to buy new clothes for my family. The Lord has been so gracious to us.”

Through your generosity, people in Gitega will be able to feed their families and avoid malnutrition, resulting in thankfulness to God.
