Value of Food Produced

“We started consuming the chemical-free foods that we planted. I specifically started noticing changes in my skin, whereby the white dry spots had disappeared and my stomach stopped grumbling. I started asking others – my dad’s ulcers had subsided and my neighbours’ kids were not suffering from malaria as frequently.

“My passion for growing health and improving the soil in simple ways increased from the changes I was seeing.”

– Melvin Isanda

How LeBeau’s partnership gift is used:

Here’s how far LeBeau’s donation dollars go in Kenya every month:


Everything begins with a seed. Once planted, it is nurtured, fed and supported.


Education empowers choice, change, opportunity and power.


Transparency through communication to share the impact that you are supporting.
