Pukar Foundation distributes tons of lifesaving food to people who are desperately hungry as a result of poverty, conflict, and famine—sometimes all three.
But PF doesn't just help feed the Pakistan during emergencies. Our farming projects help hundreds of thousands of people feed their families, work toward self-sufficiency and steward the earth's resources for future generations.
2 BAGS OF FERTILIZER $200
Fertilizer makes all the difference for a consistent and bountiful harvest. When farmers use nutrient-rich fertilizer, they produce higher yields, and have enough to feed their families and sell at market—which, in turn, feeds their communities and provides extra income to pay for their children’s health care, tuition and other necessities.
QUALITY SEED FOR A SEASON $450
Good seed is the first step in the fight to end hunger. It represents the promise of vital nutrition, good health and lasting food security. Small-scale family farms face increasing challenges of cyclical flooding, drought and disease. Quality seeds become quality crops that resist drought, pests and disease for reliable harvests.
1 LAMB OR KID (BABY GOAT) $200
A lamb or a kid can be a lifesaving gift to a poor child. Not as a pet, but as a daily source of nutritious milk. Livestock helps farm families provide well-rounded diets for their children and increase their incomes by selling milk and cheese. Pukar Foundation provides free veterinary care, including vaccinations, for the animals.
HOUSEHOLD GARDEN $300
A household garden provides important nutritional variety to poor families. Pukar Foundation teaches families how to build keyhole gardens, raised-bed gardens that are specially designed to maintain nutrient-rich soil and stay productive during winter months. They are also easy to tend, even for people with limited mobility.
1 COW $800
One cow can make a big nutritional difference for a poor household. Fresh milk means children receive a well-balanced diet, and parents can earn extra income for household needs and school tuition. Livestock is also a valuable asset that provides a family with added stability should crops fails or disaster strike.
TRAINING FOR 30 FARMERS $600
We know how to stop hunger. Pukar Foundation is teaching farmers sustainable agricultural techniques and, just as important, we are giving them the support and access they need to effectively bring their harvests to market. Only in this way can family farmers earn income, and move beyond subsistence agriculture to ensure the health and
future of their families and communities
