Central Africa Community Agriculture – GAiN

This French-speaking African country sits between the Sahara and the savannah. The resulting hot, dry climate makes it difficult to access water for growing crops. GAiN® recently helped install a water tower in the southern region of this country and will drill another well in the coming year. You can be part of a team that helps provide a sustainable food source through gardens, while pointing people to Jesus.

As part of this team, you will work with local partners to install a bucket drip-irrigation system in a community garden. Families will be able to grow food in this garden despite drought or other poor conditions. As you work side by side with local villagers, you will have the opportunity to share with them the hope of Christ.

No previous agricultural or technical experience is necessary, but you must be willing to get your hands dirty as, together, we create the drip-irrigation system and community garden.

Cost listed does not include airfare.
