Drought in East Africa threatens crops supplied to millions of people, posing an urgent need to support area farmers
Gaia Group USA is committed to social responsibility, which lies at the heart of everything Gaia Group creates. A portion of each Gaia Tablescapes product sale is donated to Grameen Foundation whose mission is to enable the poor, especially women, to create a world without hunger and poverty.
Ruth Waithera is a farmer in Kenya, providing the kind of life-giving crops needed to sustain her entire community. She’s also one of millions of people facing a crippling drought in the East African region right now. Grameen Foundation is working to raise $25,000 – and your emergency gift today will be critical in reaching their goal so smallholder farmers like Ruth can fight hunger for all of their neighbors.
There was a time when Ruth could barely afford to feed her family, until microloans enabled her to grow a thriving farm. But this drought could now take away everything she’s worked so hard for – and sadly, she won’t be alone.
Grameen Foundation is a global nonprofit organization that brings innovative and sustainable solutions to the fight against poverty and hunger. Together with local partners, they equip families, women, and smallholder farmers with resources and services that expand financial inclusion, strengthen resilience, enhance health and improve livelihoods.
Their approach combines the power of partnerships, digital technology, and self-help solutions.
- To achieve lasting change, Grameen Foundation collaborates with local partners: companies, non-governmental organizations, government agencies and others that share a common interest in developing, delivering and sustaining innovative solutions to poverty and hunger.
- Grameen Foundation strives to harness the unprecedented opportunities offered by technology, especially digital technology, to accelerate progress across their programs.
- Grameen Foundation’s solutions always promote self-help, and because children are most vulnerable to the ravages of poverty and malnutrition, they focus on women—their primary caretakers. They equip women to succeed at the very thing they are already determined to do—feed their children, improve their family’s health, and create positive change in their communities.
