SUPPORTING POVERTY-STRICKEN CHILDREN THROUGH SCHOOL
FEATURED NEWS FROM ZIMBABWE
How two Amish corn cobs upended an aid model in Zim
In 2014, the MCF’s executive director, Ben Freeth, was welcomed by a group of normally reclusive Amish farmers in Pennsylvania. Ben wanted to find out how they can farm so efficiently without requiring electricity, commercial seeds, fertilizers, or fuel to run their successful farms. Zimbabwean farmers find themselves in strikingly similar situations but are hard-pressed to cope with droughts and shortages of inputs. The meetings taught Ben three key things that allow the Amish to create a sustainable and independent way of life for their families and community. These lessons are transferable to many places in Africa.
