We accomplish our mission, in partnership with international Cru ministries, through food and agriculture, clean water, and critical aid. Our partners at Cru work in more than 190 countries in the world.
GAiN food and agricultural projects express humanitarian kindness, which helps our partners gain access, build credibility, and increase effectiveness in the places they work.
Meals for the Hungry
In areas where food shortages persist, GAiN provides children and their families with lifesaving food packs. For a sustainable food source, GAiN provides a variety of vegetable seed packs to agricultural communities.
GAiN works with communities to develop community and family gardens using bucket drip-irrigation kits. With irrigation in place, dry areas become more conducive to producing long-term food solutions.
Did You Know?
Meals for the Hungry
In places where food security remains low, starvation threatens the lives of many people. Gifts of food packs provide meals for the hungry, sustaining people in times when no food is available.
Nutritious meals of rice and soy provide essential vitamins and minerals for deficient bodies. For the severely malnourished, specially formulated potato-based meals can save lives. GAiN also distributes protein-packed meals packed by volunteers during GAiN-sponsored meal packing events.
GAiN offers a long-term food solution by giving communities seeds that can be harvested and used for planting subsequent crops. Gardens then become a continuous source of food production without outside assistance.
In addition to providing a variety of nutritious vegetables for feeding struggling families in a community, successful gardens generate excess produce that can be sold to fund community projects such as school repairs, student school fee supplements, and orphan care.
GAiN believes in strategies that create sustainability. Aid given to a community can make a difference, but life-change happens when communities learn to stand on their own. Gardens and agricultural technology make a big step toward self-sufficiency.
Training in agricultural processes helps build successful farmers despite tough climates. GAiN works with communities to develop drip irrigation for gardens. In addition, teaching seed preservation and vegetable drying techniques adds potential for food security.
