October 17 is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. To observe this day, we are working to raise funds for 2,500 seeds through the month of October.
In four years, Seed Change has already grown 80,000 trees to eradicate poverty for farming families in Tanzania. They all started as a seed. Help us continue this life changing work. We are aiming to raise money for an extra 2,500 life changing seeds for next year, costing $2,500.
$1. 1 seed. It’s not much to ask.
Every seed will grow to create a tree that brings $121 of value for farmers like Maliza Ally pictured to the left. Last week, Maliza came to the Seed Change office looking to get more Seed Change trees. With seven children and a previous salary of only $135 a year, she is confident that increasing her existing farm of twenty 12-month-old Seed Change trees will improve her ability to pay for food and medical expenses.
Maliza is so impressed with the trees so far that she wants more! With additional trees, Maliza will be able to send all of her children to a better quality private school. Her dream is to offer them greater opportunities than she had with her primary education.
All of our farmers have aspirations like Maliza’s. The more seeds we can get to our farmers, the more hard-working farmers like Maliza can secure better futures for their families.
International Days of Such and Such come and go and poverty will hardly be eradicated in October. But if we can get closer to a world without poverty, that’s probably a pretty good thing. So let’s do our bit, chip in for 2,500 more life changing seeds and get a little closer to a world without poverty.
