Earthboxes for Families in Tanzania

The Big Picture

Goal: $8,700
  $0 raised
Provide a family in rural Tanzania with an Earthbox, a high-yield, efficient container garden. Food insecurity in the Ukwega Ward in Tanzania, home to Global Volunteers? RCP Program, is a grave issue. It?s estimated that nearly 45% of children in the rural Highlands of Tanzania are stunted, which is directly linked to food insecurity. Many families have access to starches, but many families in the RCP program report that they consume very little meat or vegetables. Global Volunteers? RCP Program seeks to eradicate hunger ? and by extension, stunting ? in the Ukwega Ward. An essential step to doing that is to help families achieve food security.. One cornerstone is the EarthBox Project, providing families with nutrient-rich vegetables. Through Global Volunteers? Reaching Children?s Potential Program, mothers with a child or children under the age of two receive five EarthBoxes and pregnant women receive four.

Impact of Your Donation

Each Earthbox costs just $58 and will provide a mother and her children with nutrtious vegetables. Through Global Volunteers? Reaching Children?s Potential Program, mothers with a child or children under the age of two receive five EarthBoxes and pregnant women receive four Earthboxes.
