AGRICULTURE

From coffee beans in Guatemala to hot peppers in Ghana, agriculture is a cornerstone for subsistence and income-generation for SHGO partner communities. Agriculture is more than harvesting rice or selling bananas; to support agriculture is also to increase food security, grow economic development, and uplift communities from hunger and poverty. By working with global partners to develop strong agricultural systems with respect to the local context and natural environment, SHGO promotes self-sufficiency and a synergy with the natural world.

CLEAN WATER

Flowing streams are sites for collecting drinking water, washing, laundering, and waste disposal. And yet, one community’s drinking reservoir may be downstream from the next community’s waste site. Running water and plumbing are rare and unreliable, and the nearest well may be hours on foot. Water-borne diseases plague entire communities, perpetuating cholera and other preventable illnesses. The issue of water affects everyone but, solutions are available, affordable, and simple.

SHGO and global partners work together to provide water – a basic human right – around our world. Communities with deep water wells, solar water pumps, and innovative filtration systems experience increased health and overall productivity. A well can save a community hours of walking, days of illness, and lifetimes of struggle.
