Strong Harvest works from the bottom up, meaning that we work with families –
society’s smallest, most interconnected groups – to strengthen them.
When families are strong – when they have good nutrition, clean water, and economic opportunities – amazing things happen! Pregnant women are healthier, giving birth to healthier children; Babies are stronger and the infant mortality rate is reduced; Children are more resilient, able to attend school and retain what they learn; and Parents are able to work more productively, providing better for their families. Communities and nations are strengthened through a healthier, better educated populace, and increased local and national economies.
We call this the Trickle-Up Effect!
The Moringa Tree
It’s the most nutritious plant yet discovered and it thrives in the areas of the world where malnutrition in most prevalent. Plus it has a multitude of other amazing and practical uses!
Peer Educators are the foundation of Strong Harvest’s work ~ local people empowering their own communities to make simple changes that are sustainable, attainable, and generational.
SHI works hand-in-hand with other organizations for two reasons: 1) to increase our effectiveness and reach, and 2) because it’s just more fun to work together!
