How does it work?
While most impoverished countries have adequate resources, farmers often lack the necessary knowledge and training to make progress. Our goal for Agri-Plus is to help farmers identify their resources and implement sustainable farming practices. We want to help them identify opportunities, work together in a sharing environment, and ultimately shift from being helped to helping others. With the help of Agri-Plus, farmers can make better use of the agricultural resources around them to provide for their own families. They can also pass on their knowledge to their children to help break generational cycles of poverty. Every aspect of Agri-Plus is anchored in Biblical teaching, emphasizing family values and spiritual growth.
