Seeds and Tools



A flourishing vegie patch doesn’t happen by accident – this gift ensures that the right tools are available to get that garden growing! With training, seeds and tools, a vegie patch can feed a family – and beyond!

How your gift helps

The right supplies can really get your garden growing! Adugnah’s harvests are plentiful these days, with enough to feed her family, sell at market, and share with others. Through her Self-Help Group, Adugnah took a loan to invest in her vegetable garden – purchasing seeds and watering cans, and renting oxen for ploughing. Tearfund’s partner Ethiopian Mulu Wongel Amagnoch Church Development Commission works through local churches and Self-Help Groups like Adugnah’s, equipping them to respond to local needs and bring about positive change for their communities.
