GRO Greenhouses

In partnership with Pennsylvania State University's Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship Program (PSU-HESE), World Hope International's Greenhouses Revolutionizing Output (GRO) project improves water sustainability to ultimately boost food security and help alleviate poverty. While conventional small-scale greenhouses are expensive, high-maintenance and difficult to construct, The GRO project's Affordable Greenhouses are portable, expandable, cost less than $800 per unit and can be constructed in two days. Using WHI's existing network in Sierra Leone and Mozambique smallholder farmers learn how to intensify their farms and grow vegetables year-round. GRO project in Mozambique ended in December 31, 2017.
