Poverty to Prosperity - Growing Small Farms in Latin America
When you partner with Pontis, you equip and empower poor farmers in Latin America. Your support brings the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program to local communities. You can help more people build better crops, enterprise farms, stronger families, and generations free from poverty.
Small Farm Education and Assistance
- Start and finish with families
- It's all about relationships
- Grow small farms and their associated businesses
- Teach less chemical dependent farming methods
The Pontis Program:
- Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Training Program
- Regional Model Farm Training Centers
- Program-integral micro loans to start cash crops
- (future) Land ownership program
Plantains, a key cash crop in the Pontis program, spring forth small, children plants at their base. These are the next generation.
In much the same way, when you support Pontis education, you provide prosperity, free from poverty, for generations to come.
