Did you know...

There is enough food in the world for everyone, yet 1/3 (1.3 billion tons) is lost yearly, reported by Food and Agriculture Organization 2011.

How you can help

Every year, 3000 coconut trees in Kuyaoyao, Philippines can produce up to 75 coconuts. A coconut processing machine will husk, milk, extract meat, create oil, and grind remaining husk to pulp for export shipment. This form of processing increases yield, reduces waste and provides work for local residents. Increase the current farming rate of less than 30% of collected nuts, to nearly 100%.

About this nonprofit

Enhance a Village, Inc. (EAV) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing poverty in developing nations by educating the children and improving their communities. EAV’s metric of success is to become redundant when the village has successfully demonstrated independence from the organization’s assistance. EAV can then move on elsewhere to make an impact and alleviate poverty.
