You probably hear of many groups who do work similar to your friends here of WE CAAN. Sit back, grab a snack and let us tell you a little bit about a project we are especially proud of (other than all of them). Here’s why we are different.
In 2015, we started a farming cooperative in Nyango’s Village. We began with 225 farmer families and we are now at about 425 families! We hold workshops with professional staff to teach these farmers methods of crop rotation, knowledge of nutritious foods, importance of organic sustainable farming methods, and how to make farming crops an economically viable business. You see while we definitely love spoiling these families with packaged foods, not only is it not stable but it is less nutritious. We are not trying to find a quick temporary fix, we are trying to find a long-term solution. This way families are getting nutrient dense foods and can teach each other as well. So when we are not around, they still have the knowledge to create crops! WE CAAN wants to inspire and help the village with their growth. We are excited to see the results in the next couple years. In this day in age, we all need to remember that with an extra hand, the world could become unstoppable together. There’s enough room for all of us. Feel free to donate to help provide the tools so we caan (see what we did there) continue to bloom in Nyango’s Village!
