Community Fish Pond

A fish pond provides a steady source of protein, improving nutrition and health for a community. It also irrigates crops to give farms a boost, especially in times of drought.

Flock of Chickens

Eggs and chickens provide lifesaving protein for families. Chickens are easy to raise in small yards and can generate added income.

12 Fruit Trees for a Family

When families plant fruit trees, they grow nutrition, income and opportunity. Fruit trees are easy to grow for a family and they create shade, prevent erosion and improve soil health.

Household Garden

A household garden provides important nutritional variety to poor families. Catholic Relief Services teaches families how to build keyhole gardens, raised-bed gardens that are specially designed to maintain nutrient-rich soil and stay productive during winter months. They are also easy to tend, even for people with limited mobility.

Livestock is often a family’s most valuable asset, providing added stability should crops fail or disaster strike. Fresh milk means a well-balanced diet, and extra income for household needs and school tuition.

Fish for a Pond

A stocked fish pond means that a high-protein dinner is just a catch away. Catholic Relief Services helps families stock ponds that feed their families—even when crops fail. Fish also provide another source of income for farmers and better nutrition for the entire community.

Quality Seed for a Season

Quality seeds become quality crops that resist drought, pests and disease. Seeds fight hunger through the promise of vital nutrition, good health and lasting food security.

rabbits, charity gifts

Rabbits make more than cuddly pets. The rabbits produce organic manure for home gardens or coffee fields, which improves crop production. Small-scale coffee farmers can receive vouchers at livestock fairs to buy a small animal.
