Agriculture and Livestock

Forty percent of the world lives in moderate to severe poverty. Many of these live in rural, agrarian communities. Both animal husbandry and agriculture projects can help address issues of hunger and poverty by providing both food and income.

Through BGR projects, farmers and families are taught techniques appropriate for their area to raise better crops and livestock. In addition to a food source, they learn how to sell products (meat, eggs, milk, vegetables, and even animal dung) for income to meet the needs of their families. A gift of an animal or lot of seeds can be the spark that moves a family from hunger and poverty into empowerment and self-sufficiency.
