Planting seeds, tilling soil, growing hope

 

When refugees are forced to flee they leave everything behind — including the means to support themselves and their families. In Africa, the vast majority of refugees depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, so giving them the opportunity to grow crops is one of the best ways to help them rebuild their lives.
