Poverty and starvation are serious issues for many people in the world. Rather than just feeding the needy, MMMs are involved in programmes which have taught thousands of people how to grow their own food.
Working along with the help of donors and assistance from other NGOs. farmers and people are taught better agricultural methods. Seeds, tools and fertilizers are distributed. Educational courses are offered to help people grow their own food. There are areas where MMMs are actively working that have or are impacted by famine due to war, politics, disease or extreme weather conditions.
Clean water is also another major issue for many people in the world. MMMs are involved in the science and technology of helping people regenerate water which is an essential part of life for any one at any age.
MMMs are involved in projects to improve and develop clean accessible water supplies. Water harvesting projects are in operation to help local communities along with education programmes on how to harvest rainwater safely. Community seminars are offered to help support the local people and educate them about the importance of water in preventing illness and the spread of disease.
Creating small gardens, seed sharing and learning about horticulture are ways of addressing food security issues. Skills and tools are provided to the community.
