Achieving Independence Through Agriculture Training
Esther Beza has many responsibilities. The Malawian farmer takes care of her four children and her elderly parents, all while farming two hectares of land. But with changing rain patterns, low soil fertility and poor access to seeds, Esther’s crops didn’t yield enough food to feed her family. Esther had been skipping meals, but things changed after she participated in an agricultural training project with Presbyterian World Service & Development and Canadian Foodgrains Bank. “I no longer struggle to find seeds, and I have learned to use pig manure for fertilizer,” shares Esther, motivated by the fruitful results of the farming techniques she’s learned. Esther no longer worries about anyone going hungry. PWS&D invests in agriculture to benefit communities

We pray for those in need, especially for Cathy Kay, Dorothy Clow, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, Heather Hickox, Phyllis Weeks, and Elwin Corbett.
