FARMING

One of the greatest impediments to successful farming in sub-Saharan Africa is lack of water. Clean water is difficult to find in many regions, and wells cannot be dug in many areas due to a very deep water table.  This means that farms located away from natural sources tend to rely exclusively on rain to water their plants.  This often leads to crop failure as droughts are frequent and many.  

We have developed a rainwater collection and storage system that we call the “Tower of Life.”  You can find out more about it on our “Systems” tab. 

This same method works on a simplified scale for collecting and storing rainwater for irrigation purposes.  In this iteration, the water storage cubes are simply placed in an array on the ground.  No purification is needed, as plants can be watered with non-potable water and they will do just fine. 

Typically the water storage tanks are placed on two layers of cinder blocks, so the water can be released down drip irrigation lines using only gravity to deploy the water. 

The water can be mixed with hydroponic nutrients to provide the minerals needed to grow healthy, nutritious greens, vegetables, spices and fruits.

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.
You may be asking yourself, “Why give to World Hunger Team? Howdo I know my money will actually reach the starving people in Africa?”
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 pennyyou 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 aswell. It all goes to a good cause, and you WILL be making a difference.Thank you for your support.
