"Our Club is also beginning to raise money for families to replant the bean crops that they have lost, which has been a tremendous blow to the food security of the region. If we hurry they can plant in the next 2 weeks, still in time for farmers to get a crop of beans this year, a crucial source of protein. We have the goal of raising $4,500 to support 100 families to plant 1.6 acres each. The cost per family is $45, yielding 700-1200 lbs of beans within 90 days, enough for the families to eat as a staple food for the year. Each family will contribute 100lb from their harvest back to the community in order to create a revolving seed bank for future planting cycles, aiding in food security going forward. This is a sustainable project helping people to produce food for their families to eat for just $45 investment per family.
