Our goal is simple; to touch the lives of the people of Tanzania every day as they work to fulful their lifelong desire to live in a community that is vibrant, healthy, resourceful and self sustaining. This goal can be reached by a combination of capitalistic and socialistic programs.
The value of proposed farming practices will be proven by the farmers themselves.
Though we are a small organization, we are big in our efforts to establish model five acre farms by improving outcomes in the area of Sustainable Farmaing and Community Growth.
