VM is working towards fostering the development of and access to fresh products to supplement the existing diet. This initiative involves the sustainable development of organic farms or farming co-op within the villages that provide a source of food for those involved and a source of income from the sale of excess produce to help support the farms’ growth. The goal is to empower the indigenous population towards self-sufficiency through generation of income as well as provision of resources through farming.

VM volunteers help the farmers with clearing space and preparing the soil and building fences for a new small farm.

These farms will work towards creating a source of food for those involved and self-sufficiency through the generation of income from the sale of excess produce to support farming families and the growth of farm.
