Half of the people on our planet suffer from chronic food shortages. Over 80% are families of farmers and farm workers in developing countries who make their living off the land.

They live in poverty and lack the training and resources to overcome the challenges of marginal land, adverse weather and socio-economic adversity.

The SHARE Agriculture Foundation strives to alleviate rural poverty by supporting rural groups in countries and regions with the greatest need, primarily in Central and South America. SHARE works with rural people disadvantaged by civil war, displacement, poverty or extreme social injustice.

Drive off the highway onto a rutted dirt path, across miles of droughty terrain or up steep mountain slopes. At the end of the road you may find a SHARE project ... a group of proud farmers ready to show you their well cared for herd of goats, sheep or cattle ... their bountiful market gardens, a bee keeping or chicken project. They'll tell you how their incomes have doubled and their families now have a more reliable and diversified diet.

SHARE stands for Sending Help And Resources Everywhere and began in 1976. SHARE supports skills and expertise in agriculture and rural development. The non-profit, non-government organization works through volunteers. Small overhead expenses are covered by investment income from a bequest, so all donations go to worthy, sustainable projects. Hundreds of small projects have been completed in Brazil and Bolivia in South America, and in Honduras, El Salvador, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Haiti in Central America and even across the world in Cambodia and Africa. Many larger projects have received 3 to 1 matched funding from the Canadian International Development Agency.

SHARE operates on the principle of "A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out". SHARE's projects help people to help themselves and make their communities stronger.

SHARE's proven methods produce sustainable results. You'll be surprised that a little goes such a long way with SHARE's projects in communities at the end of the road.

Mark Cullen, SHARE's honorary patron, supports the work of SHARE: "I am a great fan of the work that SHARE does. This organization has an impact on a tremendous number of lives, increases the benefits through the "pass on principle" and isn't burdened with large administration cost. This is a volunteer driven registered charity in the purest sense of it."

There are still more roads to take. More people who need "a hand up".

Get involved! Volunteer. Share your time or your money and help the SHARE Agriculture Foundation make a difference!
