Help DC Men go from Asphalt to Abundance

Empowering Men from DC's Underprivileged Neighborhoods

Our transformative program is designed to uplift men from underprivileged neighborhoods in Washington, DC, by providing a unique opportunity to live and work on a farm for one year. Participants will receive comprehensive education in organic agriculture, equipping them with valuable farming skills and sustainable practices. Alongside agricultural training, they will engage in disciplinary classes focused on enhancing their physical health, mental resilience, and emotional well-being. This holistic approach ensures personal growth and empowerment. By the end of the year, each participant will not only gain crucial life skills but also walk away with $50,000 earned from farming their plot of land, paving the way for a brighter, more independent future.

Holistic Skill Development

Through hands-on organic farming education and sustainable practices, participants will develop vocational skills. Alongside agriculture, the program emphasizes physical health, mental resilience, and emotional well-being, preparing individuals to thrive in various aspects of life.

Promoting Equality, Equity, and Peace

Our initiative is grounded in the principles of equality, equity, and peace. With your support, participants will learn to apply these values in their daily lives, fostering a community of mutual respect and social harmony that extends beyond the farm environment.

Path to Economic Empowerment

By supporting our fundraising efforts, you contribute to providing participants with the opportunity to achieve economic independence through farming. Each participant will be allocated a plot of land to cultivate, contributing to their financial stability and future success as we work together to bring this initiative to life.
