Hunger. Hunger is defined as a feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat. To suffer through lack of food. To have a strong desire or craving for.
In Guinea Bissau 93% of the population experience chronic hunger. According to 2013 research, only 7% of their population is considered food secure. Compare that to the United States, where 86% of households are food secure.
At Hope Remembered we want to see families thriving. We want to see communities equipped with the tools and resources to meet their own physical needs. We want them to no longer dread the seven month dry season when crops die and families go hungry.
We desire to see villages gain food security through an agriculture training center. This training center will equip people from surrounding villages with the training and tools they need to produce thriving community gardens, even during the seven month dry season.
Our vision is that as the farmers are learning new techniques for growing their crops they will also be learning about the Creator of soil and seed. We desire to see the Gospel deeply rooted in the hearts of men. Our hope is that the training center participants would be equipped to return to their village to help meet the physical as well as spiritual needs of their own people.
