How does this gift help?
You are empowering families in Timor-Leste who are on the frontlines of climate breakdown. An increased intensity of prolonged droughts threatens lives and livelihoods. Two years ago, Sabina and Mateus didn’t have enough food for the year and even though they had just harvested, it was going to run out soon.
Your gift is helping families like Sabina and Mateus receive farming training to help them adapt to the change in climate. This training focuses on increasing production and protecting crops from drought. Not only does it provide food for the family to eat but the surplus can be sold at the local markets. With this income, families are able to provide other essentials such as an education for their children. Your gift is transforming lives.
