100% of your gift helps end child hunger.

DONATE

We are on a mission to help the world’s women farmers feed the 282 million people who will otherwise suffer from hunger this year. You can join us. In the places we work, that’s helping the 1 in 3 children who will suffer a lifetime of mental and physical deficits from easily preventable malnutrition diseases like stunting.

No matter how much you give, every cent funds regenerative farming projects that empower women around the world so they can feed the hungry.

Every $50 gift helps us provide 50 families with a life-saving tree that will grow hundreds of pounds of food every year, and the tools and training women need to help end hunger and climb out of poverty permanently.

Our Work

We fight hunger differently.

We know land degradation and famine are linked.  So we provide a permanent locally-led solution to hunger.  We empower the women who produce 80% of the food needed by the rural poor. Our solution works because it solves the root causes of the hunger crisis land degradation and poverty.  We give a woman easy access to the training, tools, and food processing equipment she needs to restore her land so she can feed her family nutritious foods, not just today, but for the long term.

Our Impact:

  • Founded in 2021, we have 15 Regeneration Hubs underway in 10 countries that are working hard to break the cycle of gender oppression, climate impacts, poverty, land degradation, and the global hunger crisis.
  • These training centers and regenerative businesses are helping over 65,000 women farmers, their children, and their communities build climate-resilient farms that heal degraded lands so they can grow more food
  • The women we help are now planting hundreds of thousands of life-saving nutritious trees that help protect biodiversity by feeding and sheltering wildlife, cooling the Earth, and restoring rains.  The trees will soon provide their villages with healthy nutritious food, and better incomes for these women for decades to come
  • The trees will mature, drawing carbon out of the atmosphere every year, helping everyone by working to heal our climate.

Meet Cheusi:

  • Cheusi, one of the woman farmer’s our partner in the Democratic Republic of Congo has helped, once faced hunger, violence, and climate challenges with no one to turn to for help in her darkest hours.
  • Through our support to APAA’s leader Aaron Karumba, his center’s training programs provided Cheusi with confidence, seeds, and support as she learned how to revitalize her depleted land and now she is able to feed her young family.  She is a leader training the other women in her village when once she was a downtrodden outcast with little hope for a better future.
  • Cheusi’s story is proof that together, we can make a difference that improves women’s lives and provides a beacon of hope where otherwise there is none.Donate

DONATE  Every $1 helps. Please help us transform a hungry child’s life today.

Together, we can create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.

From our commitment to working by supporting local partners to our use of innovation, to the environmental outcomes of our ecosystem regeneration, “sustainable” is never good enough for us, our projects go beyond sustaining to restoring because that’s what the world needs now. We’re committed to transparency and measuring our impact, and these supporting donors agree.

Where We Work

Explore the many ways you can help the women who feed the world!

CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMS

We provide several Capacity Building Programs that help women farmers learn how to switch to regenerative agriculture to protect and replant tropical rainforests. We provide powerful incentives that help isolated women meet their family’s basic needs. We partner with local organizations that help women achieve their goals.  Our programs support women with the resources they can’t otherwise access.  They use them to grow healthy, nutritious, climate-resilient food and climb out of poverty and food insecurity once and for all.

GLOBAL IMPACT

We support women organizations that worked with over 65,000 women farmers across 10 countries including 3 locations in the U.S. Together we are planting millions of life-saving trees that will feed nutritious resilient foods to their communities for decades to come.   We have a waiting list of leaders and women in many other countries who want our help. To grow our impact we need your support.

PARTNERSHIPS FOR SCALE

Corporate partners, Foundations, and global NGOs are key to scaling our work more quickly. Our approach can help companies that source their raw materials from farmers, meet growing consumer demand for climate action and justice.  We offer companies a solution to building the resilience of their supply sources while quickly scaling up their access to regeneratively grown and ethically sourced ingredients. We provide consulting services to help Foundations and Companies understand how to utilize the power of regenerative agriculture to support women farmers.  We also custom design nutritious tree-planting programs to help companies and individuals mitigate their climate impacts.

The Regeneration Hub model provides a holistic approach to landscape restoration and climate-resilient poverty alleviation that provides food and nutrition security for the World’s most vulnerable. We pair resilient design, including permaculture, syntropic agroforestry and water harvesting earth works with women’s permagardens, homescale food and nutrition security design at the homestead, as the basis of our holistic approach to building women’s climate adaptation.  Our Hubs are designed to restore degraded areas at the home, community and landscape scale for humans and wildlife.   Learn more about the details below.

Agroforestry instead of monocropping

Hubs promote ecosystem restoration.  The first zone of tree planting is centered around a multi-layered regenerative agroforestry system designed to meet the family’s food and nutrition security, as well as to produce high-value seedlings for large-scale reforestation of tree crops that will generate new income through diversification of markets available once crops go through value-added processing in the Hub micro-factory. Hubs generate greater wealth by reducing crop loss too. This combination provides long-term incentivizes for local people who must agree to protect forests and wildlife. The regenerative agriculture transition allows for a wider array of products which varies by region and can include tree nuts for butters and oils, perennial staple crops, coconuts, spices, pineapple, vanilla, dragon fruit, banana, shade-grown coffee and cacao, rubber, essential oils, medicinals, superfoods, bamboo, & perennial biofuels.

Innovative food processing micro-factory

The factories are designed by our team to meet the needs of families based on the specific location. They are made with off-the-shelf components that fit into easily shipped containers that can reach remote forest locations. A micro-factory can start out small, serving 40 families in a pilot project, and then can grow to serve over 6,000 families. The system design is adaptable and can be converted to process a wide array of local crops to generate resilient incomes and adapt to changing markets and climatic conditions.

Multiple valuable co-benefits

Regeneration Hubs were designed to incentivize behavior change by producing many valuable items needed by families living in rural villages. Communities decide what they want the factory to co-generate.  It can be designed to produce perennial tree crop biofuels, which can be used to provide green electricity.  This can help connect communities to the internet for remote learning and virtual health clinics or to power clean cookstoves and bio-diesel or ethanol-powered transport. Hubs can produce clean drinking water, livestock feed, and essential crop amendments that lower farmers’ costs and increase profits, like biochar, natural plant-growth accelerators, microbial inoculants, and organic fertilizers. The governance of a Hub is can be done by the local community through cooperative structures, and profits are meant to stay in the community to be reinvested in further restoring degraded lands, protecting forests, and improving the quality of life for everyone.
