Locally, The Growing Hope Globally Project builds community through fundraising activities, inviting people to help the hungry help themselves, and raising awareness about the challenges facing the world’s hungry. Our community is able to help by donating profits from crops raised as well as various other activities and donations.

Globally, Growing Hope Globally helps hungry people living in the poorest regions of the world grow their own food and earn an income. This enables them to not only have enough to eat year-round, but also to better provide for their families. GHG’s Mission is, “As a Christian response to hunger, we link the grassroots energy and commitment of rural communities in the U.S. with the capability and desire of smallholder farmers in developing countries to grow lasting solutions to hunger.”
