About the Partnership
GlobeMed at the University of Pennsylvania recently partnered with Choice Humanitarian to support programs aimed at uplifting families through sustainable agricultural methodologies.
CHOICE Humanitarian’s goal is to end extreme poverty and improve quality of life through a bottom-up, self-developing village-centered approach.
In Peru, Choice Humanitarian uses the Small Scale Agriculture Model (SSAM) to provide sustainable solutions to the world’s extreme poverty problems using principles of nutritional self-reliance. Families graduating from the SSAM program have been taught and mentored in implementing methods based on the SSAM, combined with dedication and hard work. These new skills give the participant families the foundation they need to meet their own nutritional needs, to create permanent change in their families, and to make a lasting impact on their communities.
This partnership is newly formed and the students and the partner are collaborating to identify a targeted area of support.
