It is with hope, that seeds are planted. Science and experience tell us that the seed will grow, but as each seed lands in the soil, the hope of a plentiful harvest is also sown.
For farmers in Zimbabwe, a good crop means they can feed their families, have surplus to sell for income and therefore pay for education, healthcare and other costs. Yet as the changing climate makes weather unpredictable, some tried and trusted methods of growing crops have begun failing small-scale farmers.
The Salvation Army is providing training in simple and sustainable farming techniques.
As crop yields increase and confidence grows, families from one generation to another can thrive and whole communities can know that the future they hope for is secure.
Read the stories of some of the farmers The Salvation Army has worked alongside to see the impact that renewed hope has had on their lives.
