Insect Farming: An Economical and Climate Smart Approach to Food Security for Orphans

Farms for Orphans, Inc. is working to alleviate malnutrition and hunger in one of the world’s lowest socioeconomic sectors- orphaned children- through the introduction of small scale edible insect farms.  Because of their nutritional composition, minimal resource requirements, and simple rearing techniques insects can offer an economical and environmentally sound opportunity to counter nutritional insecurity.  We believe that when children have the nutrients they need to survive and thrive waves of human potential will be unleashed.
