Inquire about the trip

Many of the poor do not own property and have no land for gardens. They have to depend on local vendors for their food - UNLESS - they can learn about container gardening!

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

A basic workshop on container gardening can have a huge impact on the people living in the community where you will be working.

The goal of this workshop is to give people the knowledge and ability to meet many of their own food needs and and help fight health issues due to malnutrition.

According to Hunger Notes, malnutrition, as measured by stunting, affects 32.5 percent of children in developing countries–one of three. In many cases, their plight began even before birth with a malnourished mother. Under-nutrition among pregnant women in developing countries leads to 1 out of 6 infants born with low birth weight. This is not only a risk factor for neonatal deaths, but also causes learning disabilities, mental, retardation, poor health, blindness and premature death.

Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.

Transformation addresses the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.

Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
