Grow2Feed Provides Impact-Funding to Improve the Health of Communities & Defeat Hunger Through Aquaculture & Food Security in Balance with Social Justice Practices
Why Support Grow2Feed
Our pilot project, launched in 2012, Grow2Feed partners with a community of 1,042 HIV+ men, women, children and orphans to establish and expand a co-operative farm with large-scale food staple gardening and goat rearing to include cash crop farming and farming of native tilapia and catfish. This project is on-going and continues to expand as the community consolidates its initial successes and expands its goals and operations.
Local Partnerships & Future Projects
Grow2Feed partners with local communities and groups in the Global South to develop and realize new projects. We believe that only when beneficiary groups invest their time and effort into a plan will a project be successful and sustainable. Grow2Feed harnesses expertise and resources to help design and implement specific solutions for other groups which have not only expressed a desire for partnership and assistance, a model we prefer to work with, groups that have demonstrated “the will and the skill” to co-operatively farm on their own, and are seeking partnership with Grow2Feed to achieve a healthier, more secure future.
Grow2Feed’s first Farm Project was launched in Liberia, West Africa, in 2012. Other interested groups in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Core d’Ivoire, and Ghana have approached Grow2Feed about developing aquaculture operations in conjunction with crop farming.
In addition, Grow2Feed has also been contacted by communities in Nicaragua, Haiti, Honduras, and India, seeking partnership and support to develop fish farms and other agricultural enterprises.
