Agricultural Practices

Exposing communities to proper agricultural practices is key in meeting the economic and food needs of the extreme poor. Using eco-friendly practices, Bright Hope works to achieve long-term solutions to hunger and poverty with agriculture initiatives like greenhouses, produce and livestock farms, fisheries, and farm co-ops. Along with helping churches provide their communities with seeds, crops, tools and equipment, Bright Hope also provides training in farming, irrigation, and the proper use of farming equipment.

Growth in the agriculture sector is twice as effective in reducing poverty than growth in other economic sectors.

86%

of rural populations rely on agriculture as a source of livelihoods, providing jobs for 1.3 billion single family farms and landless workers.

150 million

people would no longer be hungry if women farmers had the same resources as men.

“The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.”


- Psalm 85:12

Bright Hope believes in working with the local, in-country church in programs focused on agriculture. Agriculture has the two-pronged benefit of moving the community towards a higher level of food security while also allowing families to have a steady income.

Your generous gift of any amount can help those living on less than $1 a day to have Hope for Tomorrow as they strive to feed and provide for their families.

Can you imagine what life would be like if you had 16 children? How would you feed them all or afford to send each of them to school? While this may be difficult to fathom in places like the U.S., families of this size are still common in rural and impoverished areas in Uganda. This is the reality for fathers like Peter.
