FARM STEW International's mission is to improve the health and well- being of poor families and vulnerable people by sharing the recipe of abundant life throughout the world.
Below are our main objectives:

Establish Home Gardens
Establish kitchen gardens and conservation agriculture by training and equipping subsistence farm families seeking to "end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants to safe, nutritious and sufficient food year," per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal#2.1
Increase Food Availability
Increase simple, domestic processing locally available and affordable plant-based foods to maximize nutrient value, particularly soybeans, maize, fruits and vegetables; per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal#2.4
Develop Small Business
Develop entrepreneurial skills for Income Generating Activities (IGA) with agricultural products, per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #8.
"Achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations" per the UN's Sustainable Development Goal#6
FARM STEW's vision is inspired by Jesus’s desire that all “may have life and have it more abundantly” found in John 10:10. Through FARM STEW training, the world’s poor and vulnerable people will have the skills needed to address the root causes of hunger, disease, and poverty.
