We support local humanitarian heroes who care for children born into war, illness or abject poverty.

HOW WE DO IT: Children’s Gardens — massive vegetable gardens and hen houses — serve as the paramount delivery vehicle for our aid. All of our projects are managed by local people and governed by effective anti-corruption strategies. We are active in global hotspots where we have already found and tested a local partner who accepts our demands for 100% transparency.

Please call us at +1 503 866 9525 to see how YOU can get involved in the Global Roots food movement. We have proven that our way — the enabling of local communities with vibrant school lunch programs — is the best way to bring aid to children who are suffering malnourishment and emotional neglect.

Our children need clothing, toys, personal computers (etc) and we do accept in-kind donations. Recently, Boeing Inc donated 2 tons of cargo space in a brand new jet bound for a client in Africa. We filled it with fancy, gently used uniforms that were donated from a rich prep school in Medina WA — the very school where Bill Gates sent his children to elementary school.

A donation by check or credit card, however, gives us the leverage we need to make fast change. Please click here to make a tax-deductible donation by credit card

Here is a current global index of our projects:
Baharak Children’s Garden— this “food security” program helps children orphaned by war in Africa find foster homes.
Children’s Gardens in Africa — our gardens fuel lunch programs that convince parents to send their children back to school
HIV/Aids Outreach — our gardens and education programs are designed to protect teens from the scourge of the AIDS virus
Maasai Girls Gardens — our gardens will convince Maasai families not to sell their daughters into marriage and subject them to Female Genital Mutilation.
Home and Garden for Blind Tibetan Children — we support a blind Tibetan teacher who has taken in more than 20 blind children who would otherwise languish away in solitary confinement
Floating Family Gardens in Cambodia — we are about to plant our newest garden next to a rescue center for exploited Cambodian children.
Projects that need funding. Fund it in your name!
Rehabilitation Garden in Cambodia — we are about to plant our newest garden next to a rescue center for exploited Cambodian children.
This organizational Flow Chart shows how we fight corruption both in the field and at home so that we can devote a high percentage of every dollar donated to projects in the field — not advertising, fundraising or other central admin expenses. All funds spent on projects in the field are monitored by a four-tiered oversight team.
