About Our Organization

Mission Statement

“World Hunger Team seeks to improve the health and well-being of people in poverty by enabling access to organic and sustainable nutrition and safe, clean drinking water.” World Hunger Team was founded in 2009 in Nashville, Tennessee. We are a Christian organization answering Jesus’ call to “Feed my sheep”. We create systems to grow food easily where little to no food is currently grown.

How can you help?

 

You may be asking yourself, “Why give to World Hunger Team? How
do I know my money will actually reach the starving people in Africa?”

It’s easy. Support us in our mission however much you can. We’ll keep
you updated with photos and videos of the impact of your donation. And
become a part of our mission, either by volunteering your time or just helping spread the word about our work.
I know we’re not the only charity doing work in Africa. Far from it. But
we are a collected team of professionals with a clearly-defined mission:
We want to teach the world how to feed itself. And we want to give
starving people the tools, training and supplies to make it happen.

And that’s a good question. But please know that we are “Gold
Transparency 2022” rated by Candid, the service of Guidestar.org.
What’s more, our team is 100% VOLUNTEER. We are all successful
business people and we donate our time because we truly do care about
making a difference in the world.
The other key difference is that we have people ON THE GROUND in
Uganda that are implementing our mission. Each “Grow Kit” that you
fund will be personally delivered to remote jungle villages by our field
Ambassadors, Robert Bitera and Mukanga Kefa. They are both
missionaries and will provide ongoing support and supplies to the
villagers.
And because we’re a grass-roots organization, it means that every penny
you donate goes DIRECTLY to purchasing supplies for our Grow Kits.
And every penny is tax-deductible.
If you can make a substantial donation to feed 50 people, God bless you.
But if you can only make a monthly donation of $5, God bless you as
well. It all goes to a good cause, and you WILL be making a difference.
Thank you for your support.
