Good Food



Food insecurity is a huge challenge for communities facing poverty. Help farmers to thrive with training, resources and support to sustainably grow nutritious food for themselves and their communities.

How your gift helps

In rural Rajasthan, northern India, where more than half of families live below the poverty line, Tearfund’s partner EFICOR has been training farmers in soil and water conservation, kitchen gardening and sustainable agriculture. Now their crops are thriving and they can not only feed and nourish their own families, but also generate an income.

"We can go to the market and sell our cultivated fruit, vegetables and grains," says Ramlal, whose family is now enjoying delicious, healthy, home-grown food.
