As Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. Norman Borlaug stated, “You can’t build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery.” 

When farmers like Juan Pablo Rivas (right) in Nicaragua are able to access input loans and training, they can increase yields and better feed their families and their communities. 

Together we can build a more peaceful world by supporting community leaders in Nicaragua and Ghana to access the resources and knowledge needed to make lasting and sustainable changes in their own communities.
