Good Food

Good Food



For the foodie in your life. Provide people with the opportunity to access good food and potentially create a small business. It may be seeds for a vegie garden, fruit trees, bee-keeping, fish farming or livestock such as cows, goats, pigs or sheep – with training to develop a sustainable business.

“For many years we have felt moved to buy gifts like goats and vegetable gardens from TEAR’s Useful Gifts Catalogue and provide those in need with the opportunity to access good food for their families.” Bruce and Connie, from Melbourne, Australia.

How your gift helps

TEAR’s partner World Relief Mozambique facilitates a farmers’ association that encourages people to grow and sell good food, like these delicious tomatoes. Most of the association’s members are women from vulnerable or low-income backgrounds. They receive training to farm their own plot of land, and are supported with loans for seeds, irrigation and access to transport. They can make a living from their crop, and their family also gets to put healthy fresh food on the table.

Your gift of Good Food is contributing to projects like this one and making a difference in the lives of those facing poverty and marginalisation.

About our partner

World Relief Mozambique is a Christian development agency which believes God has equipped the church to use its time, energy and resources to join the vulnerable in their time of need. They are committed to transformational development, helping to empower women especially to develop a sustainable livelihood.
