Presbyterian Giving Catalog
People around the country are using the Presbyterian Giving Catalog to create a big impact in the world. A gift of $100 allows a woman like Naigaga Monica in eastern Uganda to be trained in ways that reduces hunger and poverty in her community.
Naigaga serves as a community agriculture trainer through an initiative supported by the Presbyterian Hunger Program. Supplied with improved seed and educated in new farming techniques, she and 59 other women have greatly increased the yields of their farms and improved the food and economic security of their families.
“On two acres, we used to harvest 100 kilograms of maize, and on a quarter-acre, we harvested only 10 kilograms of beans,” Monica says. “With the new seed and techniques, we harvested 700 kilograms of maize and 70 kilograms of beans in the first season. Above all, my children will no longer go to sleep hungry. We have plenty of cassava, beans, and sweet potatoes to eat.”
You can download this and other Stories of Impact to share with friends and members of your congregation. You will see how gifts through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog create a Big Impact in the lives of people like Naigaga and her community.
