• Agriculture

Lutheran World Relief knows that investing in agriculture is one of the most effective ways to reduce global poverty and instability.

Farming is the single largest source of income and jobs for poor rural households in the world. For the rural poor, farming affects all aspects of life.

When families grow enough food for themselves and to sell for income, they are able to build self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life for themselves and future generations.

Through decades of experience, we’ve learned how to help farmers get the most out of their hard work, so they can support their families.

We’ve taken these lessons and developed partnerships with communities around the world that help farmers access more money to improve their crops, learn new techniques and tools to increase their yield and attract better buyers who will pay more for their products. All this adds up to more food and money for farmers to support a healthy family and a thriving economy.
