FRB raises money to help people in developing countries grow their own food. We are thankful for the support of more than 200 U.S. growing projects that raised $3.3 million in the last year to support 62 overseas programs. FRB’s 16 member organizations and 59 local partner organizations work in more than 30 countries around the world.
FRB raises resources to support the capability and desire of small farmers in developing countries to grow lasting solutions to hunger.
What we do: FRB engages volunteers to raise money for between 50-60 overseas programs a year. All of the programs focus on developing small-holder agriculture, often in the most remote and poorest regions of the world. We see agriculture as the solution to hunger experienced in much of the world.
Why Agriculture? Much of the world's poor are farmers or have no access to land. Having enough to eat for the whole year is dependent on growing enough to last all year. Hunger is often a seasonal issue as farmers run out of last year's food before the current year's harvest. If provided with training and basic inputs like seeds or small tools, farmers can increase their harvest and therefore their food security.
