The Chinese proverb: "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime" is being realized in the Baptist Convention of Mozambique's Agriculture Project. Baptist World Aid is helping with sustainable community development in partnership with Baptists in Mozambique and empowering a community of over 300 people by achieving food security.

In the first step of the project, young adults and older women were trained in how to produce vegetables for sale in order to contribute to their family's financial stability.

  • Maize is being eaten green from the stalk, meaning that it has gone by harvest time!

  • Women will trade anything to get food for their families, including their bodies.

Baptist World Aid has made an initial grant of $5,000 available to assist relief efforts following floods and Cyclone Eline in Mozambique. The worst flooding in 50 years has already killed 150 people and it is estimated that 800,000 people have been affected. Many are now at risk from water-borne disease, malaria and hunger. The United Nations has announced that families living along the Limpopo Valley had no clean water, and that outbreaks of dysentery were rife.
