What We Do

Hope in every harvest.

Food security transforms communities by lifting people out of dependence for their daily sustenance. Through Convoy of Hope’s Agriculture programme, vulnerable farmers and families are equipped with skills, tools, and seeds to produce life-sustaining crops.

Thousands of meals are harvested each year, some of which are used to support Convoy’s Children’s Feeding program — simultaneously generating income for local farmers.

Since Convoy came to our village, I have learned that there is so much we can do in this village. I will definitely continue and work because my eyes are open now.

Agriculture Training

Agriculture is complex. Ever-changing variables like soil health, climate, and pests can have a major impact on all aspects of production. Training in agricultural best practices equips farmers with life-changing knowledge and the ability to grow more.

From kids in school to commercial farmers, Convoy teaches the most effective agricultural practices for each community. This is done by:

  • • Facilitating hands-on agricultural projects at schools.
  • • Training participants to produce and preserve food so their families have access to year-round nutrition.
  • • Engaging farmers in food production and preservation on a community or commercial scale.

By working to foster food-secure communities, Convoy is exploring long-term solutions to systemic problems. Techniques on food storage, processing, and preservation are being implemented. These methods help local farmers and economies thrive while promoting global food security.
