Around the world, 25% of people are food insecure, but in Africa, the issue is impossible to ignore. Africa is home to more than half of the global total of acutely food-insecure people, estimated at 65 million people. Against this backdrop of impossible odds, Pasture Valley Children Missions exists to help vulnerable children and families in Africa escape hunger and hopelessness and to give a hand up, not a handout, to a better future.
With the help of a $2,750 grant from the Forward Foundation, Pasture Valley Children Missions was able to buy a much-needed tractor to serve families in the African country of Eswatini. According to Pasture Valley, roughly 15 villages (about 800 people) will have food security that did not exist last year because of the new tractor.
