ECHO President/CEO David Erickson shares a heartwarming story about a five year old who, like you, is changing lives through ECHO. Thank you for your ongoing support!

For the 795 million people who are hungry today,

the world is a challenging place, both in the cities and in the countryside. The urban poor face high prices and low incomes, making nutritious food unattainable. Rural families are often malnourished because of a lack of diverse nutrients in their diets, if they have enough to eat at all. In both cases, children suffer the most.

What can you do to be part of the solution?

Tell friends and mission groups about the resources we have for those in need.

Whether you are looking for how to build a backyard container garden, or your friends in another part of the world need information on growing crops in diverse soils, ECHO can be a helpful resource.

Use your time and talents to help fight hunger around the world.

If you are inspired by our mission, then join our team of volunteers. We invite you to experience first-hand the joy of serving with ECHO. You can use your unique skills to further ECHO's mission.

Your support provides training and resources so people can feed their families.

Provide seed packets to rural farmers in areas of the world where food is scarce and hard to grow. Fund translations of training resources into various regional languages.
