Angele grew up farming peanuts in Cameroon. But when she fled to the United States to escape political upheaval, she left everything behind—including her family’s fertile croplands. With help from the IRC’s New Roots program in New York City, she is growing peanuts again—and radishes, carrots and Swiss chard—and helping other women in her community do the same. As planting season approaches, will you share Angele’s story with someone who loves to see things grow? You've taken the pledge to spread the word about the challenges that women face and the simple solutions, like a community garden, that can help them plant a healthy future. Now, it's time to take the next step. Thank you for giving a voice to Angele and women like her who have escaped conflict and are rebuilding their lives in the United States.
