Happy Earth Day!
With growing populations and poor waste management systems in so many countries around the world, our planet faces many human-made health hazards, environmental pollution, and water contamination. Winrock’s Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) volunteers promote environmental protection in every country where we work. For example, with volunteer assistance, one Bangladeshi NGO now produces 31,200 kg of compost each month from municipal waste.

Winrock’s F2F Program is glad to be a part of global efforts to conserve the environment. As the Earth Day Network states, “The fight for a clean environment continues in a climate of increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more manifest every day.”
