Victory Place Feeds Hungry Families

The impact of Covid-19 has left many people without jobs. With no government subsidy, people are struggling to feed their families. To help with food shortages, Victory Place took action by distributing more than 6000 seedlings.

During this pandemic, our Outdoor Education and Agricultural Center, Victory Place, has helped to support the government’s food security program by providing vegetable seedlings to people who have lost their jobs.

Each package consisted of organic fertilizer and 10 different kinds of vegetable seedlings as a starter for families to create a more sustainable source of food. The distribution was attended by the Vice Mayor of the city. “We targeted low-income families without jobs because of this crisis. By sharing the seeds, we share life, something that can regrow and stimulate positive activities while you are staying at home,” said Daniel, our site leader. He believes that while growing your own food can save money, gardening also promotes physical activity to keep the body healthy and stress-free.

Victory Place was developed with a vision to train village teachers to be self-sustainable and capable of managing natural resources and maximizing the potential of the region where they would be stationed. Praise God that He has met and exceeded this vision.
