Nobel Peace Prize awardee, Muhammad Yunus, sees a strong connection between saving the earth and eradicating poverty.


We agree.

 
Development In Gardening (DIG) uses TCP Global loans to  teach regenerative agriculture.

DIG's organic gardeners protect the earth and feed their communities.

Rose Odoyo's 1st loan was for $51. She received two more of $101 each to increase her income by selling a variety of nutrient-dense organic vegetables. 
 
Regenerative agriculture (RA) or "carbon farming,” refers to agricultural practices that build organic matter back into the soil, effectively storing more water and drawing more carbon out of the atmosphere. 
The Nordic Development Fund (NDF) supports 18 TCP Global loan partners in Nepal. They recognize that "Climate change and poverty reduction are closely interlinked." Their programs for sustainable, organic agriculture alleviate poverty and mitigate climate change, backed by TCP Global loans.

NDF's work in rural Nepal augmented by TCP Global loans gives small farmers the means to improve yield in a sustainable way. Many former migrant workers are able to remain at home with their families. 

In the Andes Mountains of Peru, small farmers have an extended growing season thanks to reservoirs installed by TCP Global partner AGROVIDA, using program earnings.

Instead of migrating to the city to help feed the family, they have the option of growing food on the land to help feed the city.
AGROVIDA installed reservoirs to catch and store rain water during the rainy season to provide irrigation for farmers to grow crops in the dry season. 
To save trees in Uganda, CCEDUC introduced the stove on the right which uses 3 pieces of firewood to replace traditional stove (left) which uses 8-10. CCEDUC also promotes sustainable organic agriculture and reforestation  
Good agriculture practices ensure farming is a climate change solution, not a climate problem. "A predominant pathway to achieving this objective is through carbon sequestration."  Institute for Global Prosperity, June, 2020 Report - London  
How you can support TCP Global:
 
1) Connect us with potential loan partners in marginalized communities like Michelle did in Nepal.

2) Forward this notice so others can learn from a TCP Global borrower how a little capital can have a huge impact. 

3) Volunteer to mentor a loan program in a country you know well like Elyse does. 

4) Make a
donation like 52 individuals have done so far this year, donating from $10 to $10,000.

 
100% of donations are distributed as micro-loans and matched annually by repayments.

A great return on your charitable investment!!
