This year we are thankful for something very simple. We are thankful for something that is used in some way, every single day, by every single person in this world. They are used in recipes, calendars, driving instructions, phone books, stores, clocks, birthdays and mailing addresses. Most importantly, they are used to measure the impact an organization is making as they end extreme rural poverty. We are thankful for numbers.
people die each year because of food insecurity and common diseases. That is 1 every 4 seconds.
people suffer from malaria each year as there is commonly only 1 doctor for every 10,000 people.
children die every day from malnutrition and water-related diseases.
With only 1 training center we have equipped more than 80 Organic Agricultural Trainers (OATs) and interns. These trainers are transforming communities in 5 different African countries. So far, our team has created and maintained 621 Community Development Projects. These small scale farms have brought Food and Health Security to 35,707 people in need.
This thanksgiving, we are thankful for the variety of numbers that we can use as statistics that show our influence in this world. As we move forward, we are excited to collect more data, become more efficient and share more impact numbers with you.
