Featured Partner: Episcopal Church of Cuba
PWRDF has partnered with Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio and the Episcopal Church of Cuba (ECC) to help community members to increase their knowledge, skills and capacity in food production, the planting of vegetable gardens and the raising of small animals organically and ecologically. These sustainable agricultural techniques provide sustenance and nutrition to households and supply income from the sale of surplus items. With the help of our Cuban partners, we have been able to help families grow and preserve their own foods, ensuring that there is always access to food. This has led to greater self-sufficiency in her constituency, mainly in poor rural communities. The program has helped established community vegetable gardens contribute to the community members’ nutrition and health and address food security issues. The program has also provided work, income and improved nutrition levels for mothers and children.
