Among 70% of the world’s impoverished people rely on agriculture for their incomes and livelihood, but there are many obstacles to overcome.
Many of these farmers subsist on small scale production that is inefficient and insufficient. They do not have access to the capital and education that they need to grow enough crops or raise enough animals to sustain them or sell for profits.
WE International’s program offers the opportunity for a community to grow by meeting nutritional needs, creating new economic possibilities, and increasing self-sufficiency.
We focus on relationships among members to strengthen existing ties in the community. This includes giving the first female offspring of an animal to another member of the community and providing a place for individuals to share animal husbandry knowledge with each other.
WEI also focuses on gifting animals to those marginalized within a community, focusing especially on women and ethnic minorities. This program directly provides income, food security, and opportunities for future employment with the skills learned.
By improving access to capital, animal-care education, and women empowerment in the agricultural sector, we can create a real change in the structure of agriculture and aid in the livelihoods of these communities.
