New episode alert! #LIVE : Habitat for Humanity's Disaster Relief Efforts with Erin Goodyear
#DoGood : This show benefited Habitat for Humanity International's Disaster Response Fund. We interviewed the amazing, knowledgeable, and dedicated Erin Goodyear.
Through Habitat’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Response program, Habitat provides shelter assistance, education, training and partnerships to the affected individuals who find themselves in unthinkable situations.When a disaster strikes, the loss of a home can leave you at your most vulnerable. Habitat works to rebuild communities in these circumstances, moving them from ruin to recovery.
The most basic needs become both scarce and dire in the event of an emergency: #health , #water , #shelter , #sanitation , #livelihoods , #safety and #education , among others. Habitat believe that safe, reliable shelter provides the foundation from which all of these things can begin to reemerge during the relief and rebuilding process.
#FeelGood : I tried stand up for the first time and thought that felt pretty good!

Last week, he wrote an article with the co-author of his recent #book , “Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient #Wheat , #Rural#Jobs , and #Healthy#Food ,” in @heatedmag called, “The Problem Isn’t Wheat. It’s What We’ve Done to It.” “By #farming [wheat] with industrial chemicals, transforming its nutrient profile through industrial processing, and breeding it to meet the needs of these industrial systems rather than our own bodies, we’ve taken the staff of life and turned it into a liability rather than an asset. But as I’ve seen on my own #farm and now many others around the world, this ancient edible grass can be regenerated. It can help us heal our bodies, as my #research partners and I have seen with heritage varieties that reduce #inflammation rather than cause it. It can help us heal our #land , as I’ve seen with organic production of #grains in rotation with legumes and soil-building cover #crops . And it can help us heal our rural communities, where higher quality food and decent #livelihoods go hand in hand.” 🌾 #bobquinnorganicfarmer#worldfoodday#wednesdaywisdom#gmo#scientist#glutensensitivity#health
Kunam told us he does not want to think about where he would be today without The Leprosy Mission's help. Loss of sensation in his leg, caused by #leprosy , meant that his leg was badly burned by a lamp as he slept one night and had to be amputated. As a fisherman, he was unable to continue doing his job. Today, Kunam's mobility has been restored with a prosthetic leg. His livelihood has been restored through agricultural training that he's now putting to use growing coconuts. #globaldev#WorldFoodDay#SriLanka#ntds#wellbeing#amputee#livelihoods#agriculture#WorldFoodDay2019 Photo: @ruth.towell

Through a project funded by Brooke and Kenya Network for Dissemination of Agricultural Technologies (KENDAT), school children from Mathangaura Primary School in Wanguru are learning the basics of planting and agriculture! Crops are then sold to teachers and the community to earn extra income for the school. The donkey manure is used as fertiliser to challenge misconceptions that it causes tetanus
As well as providing transportation for people and materials, working #animals across the world have a vital role in providing #food , both directly by transporting goods to and from the market, and indirectly by earning money to buy food. 🌱
On World Food Day, let’s celebrate the role that local communities play in food security: Cultural Practices of Conservation represent the everyday actions of rural communities to manage natural resources that have a positive impact on biodiversity and landscapes. These practices also support local livelihoods and household incomes. To learn about cultural practices of conservation in the Moroccan High Atlas, read this report: https://bit.ly/2U3Mek7.

“We want to improve livelihoods of the people here. The workshop benefits me and my family but it’s about the people in the community.”
—Abdugaffor Najmiddinov, owner of a canning workshop in the remote Tajik village of Kisht, near the Afghan border.
As part of the Accelerate Prosperity (AP) programme (a small business incubator established by the Aga Khan Foundation and the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development), Najmiddinov has been able to expand his business to produce and can mountain cherries and now plans to grow cucumbers and tomatoes.
Controlled grazing on the Conservancy has helped rejuvenate the grass to make it nutritious for endangered species such as the Grevy's zebra and white rhinos while benefiting communities by providing grazing grounds for their livestock during the dry season.
It is a programme that demonstrates solutions can be beneficial for both wildlife and people.

Anyway I am so delighted about my adventure in #Kerman , specially when I find new things here.
Zarghuna Art Work is new clothing/ #cosmetic brand established by afghan refugees in Dasht-e-Zahmatkeshan, kerman province, Iran. #Afghan women in District participated in tailoring vocational training workshops. After #CommunityCenter established there, they engaged for professional business. But it wasn't their end. "Zarghuna" established to be a sample of hard working and self reliance amongst #Afghan community in Iran.
The area has been named Dasht-e-Zahmatkeshan meaning "the field of hard workers". Originally emerging from a hardworking community created around brick factories, it had little to offer the young women living there. When we first advertised our workshops, a group of women from the community registered to take part in the pattern making, cutting and dressmaking courses. This initiative aimed to generate income for Afghan women aged between 17 and 30 and to create opportunities for them with their new skills.
