CIDADES SEM FOME (CITIES WITHOUT HUNGER) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) which has set up sustainable agrarian projects in urban and rural areas based on organic farming. The aim is to help and teach people to manage their own business and become financially independent. Community Gardens, School Gardens and Agricultural Greenhouses have been developed on unused and neglected public and private areas within social focal points to provide jobs and improve the diets of adults and children. In 2009 the Small Family Farms Project, the organizations fourth project, has been set up in Rio Grande do Sul, to train farmers in multiple cropping as an alternative to monoculture and help them starting new businesses in organic farming.
CITIES WITHOUT HUNGER was founded in 2004 in São Paulo by Hans Dieter Temp, who has a degree in Business Administration, and is a Technician for Agriculture and Environmental Policies. In 2013 Hans Dieter Temp was selected and awarded with the title Social Entrepreneur “Changemaker” by Ashoka. CITIES WITHOUT HUNGER has received numerous national and international awards, such as the Milton Santos Award in 2014, created to honor entities and people who have contributed with the city of São Paulo. In 2012 CITIES WITHOUT HUNGER was selected by Caixa Econômica Federal for its commitment to the realization of the UN-Millennium Goals. The organization was also awarded with the Dubai International Award for Best Practices 2010 (UN-HABITAT).
It's Christmas time and we have devised a special campaign for you and our community gardeners. Give and get a present at the same time:
Take part in our new community garden São Mateus 1 !
By adopting a plot of land you finance the implementation of the garden and the first gardening year. This way, you contribute to creating jobs, income, and food sovereignty for community gardeners, their families, and their customers who buy fresh and local.
The garden São Mateus 1 has a size of 4,500 square metres and is part of a bigger area with a total of four hectares dedicated to the creation of five new community gardens. Three of the gardens already have financing; São Mateus 4 (8,000 square metres) for example, was enabled by a donation of 94,100 Euros by JUVE Awards 2018.
