Ending hunger sustainably with stones against deserts
The rows of stones placed by the farmers themselves slow down the drainage of rainwater and allow it to seep into the soil, making it available to the plants. With every donation of 20 euros, 4o tons of stones arrive on the farmers’ fields, who contribute in 15 unpaid working days:
the collecting and crushing of the stones
the loading and supervision of the stones for the journey to their fields
the construction of the walls on the arable land
The effects are unique in this form of development cooperation:
Fallow land becomes arable land
the harvest is doubled
neighbourly solidarity communities are created
For 20 years, our technology has proven how infertile soils can be recultivated by building contour stone walls.
With your donation of 20 Euro you support the transport of 40 tons of stones and for a greener and fairer world.
