Sustainable Food

We begin with a Garden Tower to teach a family how to grow their own food. This program teaches some powerful concepts, and gets a family started on the path out of poverty.

Each Garden Tower can provide 5 people fresh vegetables daily, because we plant kale, spinach, collards, and other local greens that regenerate throughout the year. Families are taught how to take care of their Garden Towers, so that they generate the most produce. They are able to add vegetables like onions and tomatoes as they learn how the Garden Towers work.

When a family shows stewardship over their Garden Tower, they are eligible to apply for a Chicken Enterprise, which includes a rooster and 5 egg-laying chickens. The family is taught how to breed and raise chickens, sell eggs, and use the income to rise above the $1.90/day poverty line. Learn more at https://100humanitarians.org

Access to clean water is an absolute necessity for families living in poverty, and the transformation it brings to a community is immeasurable. The shift from gathering water from polluted sources like rivers, contaminated with diseases, to having a reliable source like a borehole with clean, fresh water can be a life-changing experience.

First and foremost, clean water is essential for drinking, cooking, and personal hygiene. When families no longer have to rely on dirty and disease-ridden water sources, their health improves significantly. Waterborne diseases like cholera and dysentery, which are prevalent in impoverished areas, become less of a threat. This means fewer illnesses, less medical expenses, and more productive days for community members.

The inability to afford school fees and necessary supplies for their children can perpetuate a cycle of poverty for families struggling to make ends meet. Education is often considered a ladder out of poverty, but when financial barriers prevent children from accessing it, the consequences can be devastating.

First and foremost, education equips children with knowledge, skills, and opportunities for a brighter future. It is the key to breaking the chains of poverty by opening doors to better job prospects and higher income levels. When children miss out on education due to financial constraints, they are more likely to remain trapped in low-paying, unskilled jobs, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

Families in poverty often grapple with a myriad of health challenges, and one particularly overlooked issue is the lack of access to proper menstrual hygiene management for girls and women. This problem can have far-reaching consequences, including hindering educational opportunities.

In many impoverished communities, girls often miss school during their menstrual cycles due to the unavailability of affordable and reliable feminine hygiene products. This absence not only disrupts their education but also perpetuates the cycle of poverty.

However, reusable feminine hygiene products provide a practical and sustainable solution. Cloth pads and menstrual cups offer a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and hygienic way for girls to manage their periods. By ensuring that girls have access to these products, we can help prevent them from missing school days, ultimately empowering them to stay in education.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

100 Humanitarians International is a community of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and individuals around the world collaborating to create opportunities, both locally and internationally, for self-reliance, education and economic development. We are committed to sustainable projects that support communities and preserve the culture of indigenous tribes.

Our mission is to mentor families globally through self-reliance, education and entrepreneurship in an effort to eliminate physical, mental, spiritual and emotional poverty, while preserving culture and tradition.

We believe that by giving them a hand up, we can change that number! Teaching families how to grow their own gardens and raise their own food is the answer. Along with implementing community-owned projects, our local community directors help facilitate comprehensive programs addressing the challenges of food, water, education, and health.

We focus on four pillars of sustainability - Food, Water, Education, and Health. Our projects fit under these pillars in the following ways:

Sustainable Food: We help families learn to grow their own food in Kenya through our Garden Tower program, provide chicken businesses for families to raise and sell eggs and meat, and provide goat businesses for families to sell milk to use for other needs.

Clean Water: We provide rainwater capture tanks, protect springs, and drill boreholes in communities to provide access to clean water.

Education: We sponsor students in school, and build training and sewing centers to teach skills.

Health: We provide reproductive health training with reusable feminine hygiene kits to women and girls in Kenya.

Our programs are run by in-country Community Directors, and we run humanitarian expeditions 6-8 times each year to implement our programs.

We partner and collaborate with organizations and foundations to fundraise for our programs, as well as host events, galas, and public online fundraisers. Our team consists of entrepreneurs and volunteers who help achieve our goals.

So far, we have built 14,000+ Garden Towers, teaching over 100,000 people how to grow their own food. We have provided chicken businesses to 250 families, and have donated over 100 goats.

For clean water, we have distributed over 1500 water tanks, protected 20 springs, and drilled 3 boreholes in Kenya.

We have sponsored 50 students in school at various ages, and have had 16 students graduate from high school and go on to college, employment, or marriage.

We have distributed over 8000 feminine hygiene kits and trained women and girls in reproductive health throughout Kenya.

Our programs work, and we will continue to reach more families in the coming years.
