Pick a Project
The grain grinder is not only used to help produce better flour from the corn, it is also a great time saver. Women in Burkina Faso could spend upwards of 4 hours a day pounding corn into flour to make a meal. This machine cuts that process down to minutes. It is also a source of income for the Burkinabe people that are running the grinder for the village.
We give village farms plows that they can hook up to cows or donkeys. Most farmers will work the ground with their hands. By giving them a plow they can increase their production, which means there will be more food when the harvest comes. This means there will be more food to go around to their own families and other villagers.
We give out donkey carts for a couple of reasons. One reason is that the farmers will have a tool to aid them in bringing in the harvest from the fields. Another reason is they will have their own transportation to take the extra harvest to the market to sell. They will also be able to use that cart to help others.
We give out ox, otherwise known as cows, so that the farmers have an animal to pull the plows. We also teach them animal husbandry so they can learn how care for and reproduce their livestock.
Host a GOH Weekend
Grain of Hope is built on two main pillars. One being speaking up for the poor and helpless and seeing they get justice. Thus we have set up projects around the world. The other main pillar is to come alongside students to help them not only understand the situations of this world, but also help them understand that they can change it. A Grain of Hope weekend is designed to help you lead and participate in an experience that not only will change the world, but also changes you. We have many free resources for you including lessons leading into your event, a sample event schedule, sample experiential activities to help you and your group understand with your heart the problems in this world, and much more.
