Every human should have access to basic needs of water, food, and shelter. We cannot address other issues until people have the basic essentials that give them an opportunity to help themselves. Every human should have access to opportunities that better their situation, but these opportunities should not be handouts, some personal contribution must be required by the recipient. We must invest in children and their education. improve the lives of children and their families because we believe every child should be provided with opportunities to help them reach their potential. They are essential to the future of our planet.

We are Social Entrpreneurs.
The revenue we generate through such enterprises helps reduce their dependence on government and philanthropic funding, and thus, often encourages nonprofits to adopt more innovative, community-driven approaches.
Our vision is to change the world one project at a time.
Social entrepreneurs play the role of change agents in the social sector,
Adopting a mission to create and sustain social value (not just private value),
Recognizing and relentlessly pursuing new opportunities to serve that mission,
Engaging in a process of continuous innovation, adaptation, and learning,
Acting boldly without being limited by resources currently in hand, and
Exhibiting a heightened sense of accountability to the constituencies served and for the outcomes created. From this definition we can see that social entrepreneurship involves the direct application of business entrepreneurship mindset, tools, techniques, and processes to the pursuit of a social mission.
When children are involved in gardening, good things happen. They show more interest in eating fruits and vegetables, do better academically, and demonstrate overall improved attitudes.
Healthy food makes for smarter, healthier kids — studies show that good nutrition and regular physical activity is important for children’s brain development and long-term health.
Poverty means parents can’t feed their families enough nutritious food, leaving children malnourished. Malnutrition leads to irreversibly stunted development and shorter, less productive lives. Less productive lives mean no escape from poverty. We have to break this cycle.
The good news is that there is a way to break out of this cycle of poverty and hunger. We know what needs to be done to increase the amount of food that is produced, to increase people’s incomes so they can access this food, and to ensure that children are well fed so they can grow and prosper. Investing in permaculture – and the financial and infrastructure systems that support it – is one of the best ways to reduce poverty across the developing world.
The Comedor Infantil is a lunch time meal program in Juarez, Mexico that feeds over 300 impoverished children a nutritious lunch Monday-Friday. The Comedor was born out of the community of Villas de Alcala’s vision to feed the most at risk children in their community and ensure that these children have the opportunity for a bright, hunger-free future.
What makes the Comedor unique, is that it is a community envisioned, community built, and community run program. With the help of the Volunteers, local members of the community were empowered to begin this lunch time meal program.
The Soy Love Project believes that, if children are to be our leaders of tomorrow, we need to set them up to achieve great success. We strive to do so by helping push projects that help communities. In doing so, children are given access to fresh produce and the opportunity to learn about local food production in a safe and fun environment.
By sharing our expertise on growing food in the desert, we are inspiring future generations of healthy eaters and food justice advocates who will lead the way in making our community one that is hunger-free.
Our aim is to assist these people to grow food sustainably, using organic methods, at home and in community gardens and, secondly, to plant water wise indigenous trees and flora in schools and streets, in order to transform the community of Villas Alcala into a sustainable water-wise urban environment. We will provide support services like low-cost bulk compost, seed, seedlings, information, training and on-site project extension. The economic potential is big, as there is a high and ever growing demand for organic vegetables. Organic markets and retailers large and small are always undersupplied.
